Special Tools for Exceptional Students

My students need some specific items to help them focus in the classroom. These include stress management items, stands for typing, and tubing to kick to focus on work.

My Students

As an inclusion teacher, my classroom changes by class period. I work with students in grades 2 through 4. My students are hard working, special education students who are pushed to achieve at their true level of potential. "There is a brilliant child locked inside every student."-- Marva Collin

My students are special education students who learn in the general education classroom.

My students cover three grade levels (grades 2, 3, and 4). My students have a wide variety of disabilities. Our school is in a mixed socioeconomic area. 59% of our students receive free or reduced lunch. In spite of these challenges, our students continue to outperform many school in similar environments.

My Project

The materials I am requesting will help my students to continue making progress in the classroom. The items I selected either provide stress relief or aid in focus. The book stands will allow my students to type papers and reports they create. The stress balls, pencils, and tubing will provide ways for my students to remain focused by releasing their excess physical energy.

These materials will result in my students getting more out each lesson.

This project will help bridge the gap between my students and their general education peers. These items will also help reduce the amount negative behavior in the classroom.
