Mrs. Stamm from Long Lake MN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Real World Readers!

My students need the ENGAGED Box Set, Look N Cook, and the Listen and Respond- Professional Edition to increase their reading comprehension with age-appropriate materials so that they can transfer these skills to their lives.

My Students

My special education classroom services high school students with Developmental Cognitive Disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorders. The students I serve have a variety of strengths and abilities, and the goal of my life skills classes equip them with the skills that they need to be self-advocating, independent, and active members of their community.

I want my students to reach for the stars and make their life goals and dreams a reality.

To do this, they need exposure to a variety of age-appropriate curriculum that will allow them to access general education curriculum, peak their interests, learn life skills to be independent adults, and equip them with the tools they need to be life long learners!

My Project

Through the ENGAGE box set, students will gain essential reading comprehension skills while enjoying books that are not only at their reading level, but contain topics of interest to high schoolers. The Look N Cook and Listen and Respond Curriculum will give my students the opportunity to practice their skills in real world situations such as filling job orders, cooking, and every day comprehension.

In my classroom, students have the opportunity to practice and generalize the skills they have learned in fun, real-world situations that they will encounter in their adult lives.

My students need these age appropriate materials that are geared towards their academic level.
