I am lucky to work with some of the best students around, who happen to have special needs. The students are kind, compassion, and funny. We are enjoying getting to know each other this year. Most come from low income families so receiving supplies is difficult. My students have a wide range of disabilities and needs, and it is important to give them the skills they need to be independent, successful adults. I know that with supportive adults, these students will make incredible progress.
My grade level has had a ton of move-ins, and I need some more supplies for my students to be safe, responsible and respectful. We need 5 more pairs of headphones, 5 more scientific calculators, fidgets (to help keep calm and reduce anxiety), and another bean bag chair to keep kids comfortable.
Science proves that students need to be able to move to help them learn.
My students are especially active, and need access to appropriate supplies to help them level the playing field. My students are currently sharing their headphones and calculators, and it will be much easier with these additional headphones and calculators for them to plug into their learning environment to help them meet their goals.
