Ms. Kenny from Jersey City NJ is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Speech and Language Learning Supplies!

My students need resources to help them achieve their speech and language goals and, ultimately, communicate more effectively in the school setting.

My Students

The two schools I serve are Title I schools in a large, urban district. My students, who range from preschool to eighth grade, receive special education services and present with a range of disabilities including learning disabilities, Down Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, language impairments, articulation and phonological disorders, pragmatic deficits, and fluency disorders. These students struggle to communicate effectively with their teachers and peers in the school setting.

Despite the difficulties they face, both in and out of the classroom, my students are kind, funny, and motivated kids.

There are many times I wish I could do more for them.

My Project

Most of the materials I use to help my students achieve their goals are hand made or purchased by me. This, of course, becomes costly and time consuming. I've requested materials to make items for my students, or that I would not be able to make myself. The materials I have requested would be used each and every week, if not every day. For example, many of my students struggle to respond appropriately to wh-questions (e.g., "What to you use to cut?" "Where do you go when you are sick?"). The Ask & Answer "WH" Question Bingo would be a fun, more engaging way to teach these concepts. Several of my students present with severe stuttering, which can influence them both academically and socially. The Fluency River board game would allow these students to work on their fluency strategies and have fun simultaneously! I also have several students who are on the Autism spectrum and do not use verbal communication. It is my job to give these kids a way to communicate! For some, that is picture exchange. Small binders with sturdy dividers make a great picture exchange communication book. Students learn to request and comment by exchanging pictures with their communication partners.

In the words of educator and philosopher Paulo Freire, "Only through communication can human life hold meaning." Please consider helping me as I help my students improve their communication skills.
