Ms. Graves from Montrose NY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a functional, meaningful, safe classroom and space to help them obtain the necessary life skills needed for the real world!
I work with a fantastic group of high school students, all with special needs. Most of the students I work with have Autism and are absolute rockstars. My youngest student is 14 years old and my oldest is 21 (about to age out). My students range from non-verbal, to completely verbal (sometimes not knowing when to stop lol).
All of these young adults have been working very very hard to establish themselves in their community and school community alike.
They have been working hard learning skills that will assist them in life after high school, as many of us know is not that easy for anyone. Our instruction is mostly community based after we first learn the skills in the classroom. The funny part is, my kids NEVER COMPLAIN. They come in everyday and work so hard and do not quit. They are such great examples for their peers and other teachers.
The materials I am requesting are all resources to help my students obtain solid life and functional skills. I am focusing on having my kiddos ready to go out in the community on a more consistent basis, but there are still many things we need to work on! Some of my students still have difficulty understanding community basics or even being able to verbalize their address, etc.
Life skills aren't the only things I am trying to reinforce, I am also trying to teach my students how to comfortable and feel safe.
Hence why I am also asking for the pillows. I am trying to provide flexible seating in the small space I have to enable my students to learn the best they can and allow them to perform. The whiteboard desk would be an excellent addition to the room for a math station when I am doing math activities!
