Ms. Kellogg from Gilbert AZ is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Plenty of Reasons to Recycle Goods

My students need recycling supplies such as trash bags & the cleaning supplies are disinfectant wipes, sponges, towels, and sanitizing spray for our classroom.

My Students

A day in our classroom involves conversations about keeping our school and community as green as possible through reusing, reducing, and recycling. For completing their job they are rewarded with play money. The play money is then used towards snacks, free time, or our reward bin.

My students are in the low cognitive disability range.

In our classroom we focus on functional skills such as tying, looping, sorting, recycling, folding, cleaning, and social skills. We try to expose them to as many real world situations as possible. This year the students were given money for jobs that we have created around campus. The money is then used for our walking Community Based Instruction outings such as The Good Egg, Weinerschnitzel, local pizza restaurant, and Goodwill. The students are learning money exchange skills as well as how to purchase items using their words rather than picture cards. They are able to make decisions about how to save or spend their own money. Our school embraces special needs students and allows us to participate in as many activities that the general education population does such as pep assemblies, library, athletics, and Unified PE.

My Project

The resources that have been requested will aid the students during our jobs class periods. My students have several jobs throughout the campus. The general education students notice my students working and typically ask what they can do to help them. Most of the teachers have requested bigger recycle bins which is why we have asked for large plastic bins to place in more classrooms. We have also requested more plastic bags to be placed on our recycle carts for when we walk around campus. We are also requesting Clorox disinfecting wipes for when we clean our tables from cooking, eating, and silly putty activities. When a student or teacher is sick we try to emphasize keeping good hygiene by using sanitizing spray as well. We are asking for scotch brite cleaning pads to help us scrub our dishes after our cooking lessons and one of our jobs is to clean our preschoolers toys.

Your donation will improve our classroom by allowing us to teach the skills necessary for being productive working citizens in society.

Many businesses do not hire special needs students because they are not equipped with the skills necessary to bag groceries, sort toys, or stock up inventory on the floor. When the students receive the Donors Choose items we count, sort, & organize all the items to ensure everything was delivered. We also decide how the items will fit in our cupboards & class.
