My Students

My students are in a 12:1:1 classroom. They have been together for five years and are excited for a new year and new start! My students are all learning disabled, but are full of energy and excitement. They are well-behaved and love science and math. Our school is a Title I School with every student receiving free lunch.

Learning disabilities do not keep my students from achieving their goals.

They work extra hard to keep up and they enjoy learning new topics.

My Project

My special education kids are requesting new headphones for our listening center. We are requesting the headphones with a microphone so that students can record themselves reading for the teacher to hear. We are also requesting sanitary covers, to keep everyone healthy while sharing the headsets. We will use these headphones during our math and literacy centers. We use computers during our math rotations and kids relearn the lesson on computers and need headphones.

Listening to stories is an important part of literacy and each day!

Our classroom uses a Daily 5 schedule and we need new materials to keep our listening center up to date. We would like to use these at our computer center, where we use Raz-Kids online program to listen to stories. Please help our classroom by donating!
