Help me give my students the sound of silence with much needed new headphones!
My classroom consists of thirteen students grades second, third, and fourth grade. It is a self-contained, low-incidence special education room. The individuals are diverse learners who have moderate to severe disabilities that include autism, Down syndrome, intellectual disabilities, and speech and language impairments. My students come from all over the city of Chicago, making the class very diverse in terms of background and culture.
No matter the challenging situations and difficulties they face, my students continue to come to school happy and eager to learn; they are amazing!
We are a Chicago Public School.
Currently, our district is in a financial crisis. Because of this, the school lacks funding to appropriately support our classroom and students. With a little help from DonorsChoose.org, we can get tools to support, enhance, and facilitate learning in a productive way!
My students are in desperate need of headphones! The daily wear and tear have left us with one working pair, and it only works on one side.
My students are wonderful individuals with very unique needs.
It is often challenging for them to complete work without incentives. The iPad is a big incentive. The iPads are full of learning games that reinforce lessons taught throughout the day. Because of the lack of headphones, the noisy iPads are very distracting to the other learners. Many of my students are noise sensitive, making this an even larger problem.
Receiving these headphones would be an amazing solution. Many of my students come from low-income backgrounds, and the expense of new headphones is too much of a burden.
In addition to the headphones, we are ALWAYS in need of color ink. My curriculum is completely unique and developed specifically to the student. We don't use textbooks, so color ink is so important, yet so expensive! Thank you so much for your consideration!
