Mrs. Freeman from Atascadero CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students materials to show us what they know in unique ways and support their sensory needs.
I teach 3rd- 5th grade special education for students who have moderate to severe disabilities. The range of students that I teach changes from year to year with disabilities including autism, down syndrome, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, speech and language impairments, and other various disabilities.
In my classroom, I like to focus on students' abilities, not disabilities.
The supplies that I selected will provide students with more opportunities to show us what they are capable of, and will help make learning more enjoyable for them.
I also co-teach with another special education class on campus, which is why this project would benefit more than just my students. My class currently has 8 students, and the other class has 9 students. The materials provided will benefit both groups of students.
These materials will make a huge difference in my students' learning for a variety of reasons. The supplies that I selected are a mix of sensory supplies, STEM activities, and materials that our classroom is currently lacking.
Sensory supplies provide students with the sensory input that their bodies need to allow them to be more available for learning.
I have seen so much success with providing sensory input options throughout the day, and having more of a variety to choose from will set our students up for success.
STEM activities allow our students to show us their creativity and specialized skill sets that we may not know about without these hands on projects.
The other supplies that I selected are items that I have been wanting to get for the classroom, but have been waiting to save money to purchase on my own (such as the globe).
