Ms. Palmer from Nashville TN is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Pre K Room Readiness

My students need supplies for crafts and a room divider to aid with attention to task and staying in a designated area.

My Students

We are a self-contained preschool special education class for children with severe communication delays and behavioral needs.

The classroom has four adults (1 teacher and 3 assistants) for 12 students.

Our entertaining kiddos are ages 3-5. The students work best when provided with tailored learning opportunities that offer multiple means of engagement to target individual goals. For example, this could mean a child "says hi" by pushing a button on a voice output device, or uses adaptive scissors as they begin to learn to cut. The students work tirelessly every day to learn skills that most people take for granted (such as sitting, throwing trash away, hand washing, and so on).

My Project

This room divider will help students attend to tasks by limiting distractions and providing a physical barrier to help them recognize limits. The lightweight aspect of it, along with its portability really make it a great tool to have in our classroom.

Many students in our classroom have goals that address their ability to remain in designated areas as well as focus on their work.

The Velcro will be used to help with communication systems, contingency boards, and visual schedules. These are vital systems that we use each and every day in our classroom and we go through a lot of Velcro!
