Special Kids Need Love Too!

My students need an oversized easel for practicing very basic skills and to make group learning more accessible for my physically disabled students.

My Students

"Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand." All my students have at least one disability that prevents them from learning in a general education setting. However, they happily come to school everyday ready to take on life's challenges.

My group of students is the most delightful class of K-2nd grade students.

Most are speech and language impaired, several have learning disabilities, and two have cerebral palsy. However, despite their disabilities, they are the hardest working group of students I have ever had. Our school is a high poverty school, and an over-sized easel is simply too expensive for our budget. The white boards in the classroom are too high for my wheelchair bound and Kindergarten students, limiting them in their ability to fully participate in some of our class activities.

My Project

An easel is the perfect height for my younger students and can be rolled over to those students who are limited in their mobility. This would allow everyone in the class to participate in centers without difficulty, making learning more enjoyable and exciting. Since the easel has a low shelf that is easily accessible, our morning meetings can become more interactive since the shelf can hold all the materials needed for this important group lesson time.

I have always worked in school districts that were able to support the needs of their students.

However, my time in this district has been enlightening. This school is poor and financial support is basically non-existent. PLEASE help me create the next generation of intelligent highly motivated individuals.
