Ms. C. from Newark NJ is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Special Students Need Special Teaching

Help me give my students the ability to learn as I try to teach through a screen instead of directly in our classroom. The chart pads will help them see the lessons and examples.

My Students

When March 13th came, I never knew I was saying goodbye to my students that Friday for what is now going on for 8 weeks. The following Monday, we began a new normal. I miss them terribly, and they tell me they miss me as well.

My sweet students will need to learn differently.

They are a unique group of children. They are on the Autism Spectrum and are of very different abilities, to begin with. We are located in an urban low economic area where over 90% of students in our school get free lunch and breakfast. I worry about that sometimes as well during this time.

My Project

The chart paper will enable my students to see me teaching through the screen on chart paper as I had inside our classroom. It will bring some familiarity to them and comfort.

My students with autism are having a very hard time being away from the classroom.

The chart paper will help me set up more of a classroom feel to them as I run live classes through our computers.

I will use the charts to model math problems. review their assignments, and teach vocabulary and spelling words. This will help them to have more of a classroom feel.
