Ms. Goslee from Adelanto CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students floor lamps in order to eliminate overstimulation with fluorescent lighting.
Our Title I school is located in Southern California and is surrounded by three correctional facilities. This year, our school was funded, allowing us to give every student a free breakfast and lunch. Our school's population is around 400 students with various ethnic backgrounds.
Approximately 14% of our school population is comprised of children who are in the foster care system.
We also have a large number of homeless families who live in motels/hotels and broken-down travel trailers that do not have running water or working electricity. Often, our students come to school without having had a warm meal or a consistent place to lay their heads and sleep.
My amazing class is full of energetic, sweet, and smart students within the grade levels of 3rd through 5th. Our class has been designed as a mild to moderate Special Academic Instruction (SAI) setting that has students with disabilities ranging from Autism to Emotionally Disturbed. We are a self-contained, full day special needs class with children who love to use all different types of modalities to learn!
Within this project, one will find a few floor lamps being request in order to light up our dim room. These lights will assist my students with Autism as well as minimize overstimulation for my children with ADD/ADHD. The fluorescent lighting within our classroom is affecting my students is in a negative way. For my students with special needs, such lightening will enable them to be able to self-regulate easier as well as remain focused on academic materials for longer periods of time. We wish our window was larger and would bring in more natural sunlight, yet we face North and the window we do have is small. Thank you for reviewing our project.
