I have 26 motivated students eager to learn. My students come from a low socioeconomic background and 100% of them receive free breakfast, lunch, and supper. They have limited resources available. Many parents work two jobs and are barely able to support the family.
Most of my students have limited resources available, which includes books and everyday supplies.
Therefore, I often bring in supplies as well as other necessities to keep them going. I know that if we provide them with the right support, resources, and opportunities, they can thrive and experience success.
Many special education students are mainstreamed into regular classrooms. I have noticed that some students have difficulty with pencil and paper assignments. At times, it is easier and more fun, for the students to type and print their assignments and stories instead of writing them on paper. We use a lot of ink in our classroom printer! Students are always ready and excited when they are working with whiteboards, markers, and their own eraser. The fidgit toys will help keep students stay on task or help to calm them down in difficult times.
We, teachers have to find ways to help special needs students be successfully in a regular education classroom.
These items will benefit the special needs students and help them cope with our curriculum.
