Mrs. Hodge from Cincinnati OH is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Special Education Classroom

My students need basic classroom supplies for their Resource Room. The students need organization tools and hands-on materials for engaging learning. Many do not come to school with the basics, such as pencils, markers, and paper.

My Students

For the upcoming 2018-2019 school year I will be working in a Resource Room with 6th grade students that have IEPs. These students struggle with keeping pace in the general education classroom. The Resource Room provides them with the same curriculum, however it is presented at a slower pace with repeated practice.

These students are resilient and have the perseverance needed to be successful.

Regardless of challenges they face, they put forth the effort needed to overcome their obstacles. I would like to provide my students with the basic school supplies needed for success in the classroom.

My Project

The resources I have chosen for my Special Education Resource Room will be set up in a way that is organized and will give students the materials they need to make learning engaging. Materials such as the whiteboards and clear sheet protectors with dry erase markers make learning hands-on and fun. Rather than wasting paper to practice math skills on paper, they can use white boards to connect to learning. The clear sleeves are great for slipping in a practice worksheet and students can use Expo markers on the sheet, rather than make unnecessary copies. The organization supplies make it easy for students to find the materials and resources they need for their learning. Each student will have a space for their materials and know where to go to find the supplies they need. The Ipevo High Definition camera will connect to the ENO board and I will be able to project work on the board and edit for them to copy and fix their work. It is also great for having students copy notes for their Math and Language Arts notebooks File folders and organizer keep student work organized. Pencils and a pencil sharper are supplies that will be available on hand for the students. Generally, many do not come to school with the necessary supplies.
