My Students

I have 12 special needs 4 year old children in my classroom. Their disabilities range from speech and language impaired to otherwise health impaired. Due to some physical impairments their gross motor skills are effected. They are loving, energetic, eager to learn little ones who need outdoor equipment they can use and a storage unit to keep the stuff in.

The students enjoy having bikes and other activities to play with outside here at school.

Many of them do not get that opportunity at home, because they come from low income families and have a bike to ride may not be ideal for their living situation.

Have a storage unit to keep them in will help keep the hallways clear for safety reasons and will help to keep everything in one easy accessible place.

My Project

The materials I am asking for like the storage unit will help to store all of the fun outside activities we have like bikes, balls and other gross motor activities. We have a concrete path that the students ride their bikes on, but having to haul the bikes in and out of the school can be a bit difficult with some students.

Having the unit will help with the hauling them in and out of school as well as help to clear out the hallway for safety reasons.

With so many bikes sitting in the hallway, there is not much room to walk.

This will create more opportunity to have an area for indoor gross motor activities like the dice and ribbons for bad weather day.
