My students need hands on calculators and other manipulatives to meet their special needs. Hot Dots pens will bringing the math and ELA off the page and enrich their learning environment.
My students have spent the last four years having people do everything with them. I need to start giving them opportunities to work by themselves. The independence will help with their self esteem. The Dot Pens will help them on their journey to become independent learners.
My students are 9 of the most wonderful people I have ever met.
They do not let their their special needs hold them back. They are eager to learn and play. They come to school with more baggage than most adults I know. Some are lonely,hungry, scared, anxious and neglected. Although I often feel defeated because I cannot change what they go home to; it helps knowing that I have done all I can do during the school day. By ensuring they have all the advantages other students have, I can create an even playing field for them. If suffering from poverty is not enough, having special needs intensifies their struggle. Please help me make sure they are not left behind. By filling our classroom with enriching material you can make a difference.
We will use the Dot Pens as a (supervised) independent enrichment center. Because my student are in a self contained classroom, we are not eligible for the reading and math help provided by the building. By creating centers that my students can do independently, it builds their self esteem and allows me time to work one -on- one with the students who need it. It is a win-win situation. These Dot centers will provided much needed math and ELA enrichment.
Your donation to our classroom will help enrich the learning environment for 9 wonderful special education students.
It will also grow with them over the next three years. It will afford them the independence they need and allow me time to work on-on-one with students who need it. Many of these students come from homes where their caregivers either do not know how to help them or just choose not to. We are all they have. Please help me to even the playing field for them!
