Ms. dora-kelly from Mims FL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

I teach children with varying exceptionalities such as specific learning disabilities, autism, vision impairment, and cerebral palsy. My students are at least two grade levels behind their same-age peers.

We are a Title I school which means many of the children come from impoverished backgrounds.

They have parents who have many challenges. Many students are part of the Hunger Project which helps feed them on weekends.

In my room, the students are able to work on their level and at the pace they need. We are trying to ensure that they get the most out of their education.

My Project

We teach students that need to develop their fine and gross motor skills.

The students use various items to learn through play, cooperative centers, and individual hands-on activities.

We would love to have dough cutting mats and plastic rolling pins for our play dough center. The bow tying board will benefit our older students who still need to work on tying shoes. The straw and connector set and Life in the Coral Reef game will be used during STEAM centers when we allow the students to explore in groups of two. We will use the Word Shark game during the independent center during the ELA block.
