Mrs. Matthews from Aberdeen WA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Re-Energizing Special Education

My students need more items to keep them engaged in learning and ways to organize their learning spaces.

My Students

These are very spacial students. The students this project will be helping are special education students that range in all ages and levels. They are high energy children, highly driven to learn more about life.

These students are growing and learning more and more about the ways things work every day.

They are always up for a new challenge. Even though these children are challenged in life everyday, they always show up to school with a smile on their face and are ready to see what they will learn that day.

My Project

We ask for a better thermometer to keep an eye on the health of our students. The one we have now makes it difficult to check the temperature of all students because of their personal disabilities.

The activities we are asking for these students will help keep them focused.

These items will keep the children engaged on learning by offering new activities to keep them from being bored. The items we are asking for are also learning tools as well as calming tools.

As a class with a lot going on at all times we are asking for storage bins and personal storage drawers to get more organized and help the day move more smoothly. These organizational tools will also save the educators time, so we can spend more time working one on one with our students.
