Ms. Jones from Detroit MI is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need Magna-blocks and legos for STEAM engineering and building activities.
The word “exceptional” means different things to different people. For my high school students it means that they are exceptionally in need of a unique environment to assist them in learning. My name is Monica Jones and I am a 3rd year teacher in a center based program that services special needs high school students. We are situated in the middle of an industrial city where 80% of the population receives government aid for housing and food stamps for food. Of course this lack of resources spills over into the school system. The daily challenge stems from the impoverished households and environments that they leave every morning as they board that yellow bus. Physical modalities such as webbed limbs, absence of digits, and paralyzed extremities coupled with cognitive deficits add unsurmountable challenges to the learning environment.
The inspiration for my project is to engage my students in team building exercises by having them create an escape room within the classroom. Their special needs are built on learning through hands-on projects that require collaboration and team work. ALL of their learning plans address building upon skills that many take for granted.
Building student engagement with Magna-blocks and Legos will provide this special group of students with an exciting way to use their ELA and math skills.
They will use these various building items to increase their science and engineering skills within the classroom, and increase their fine motor skills.
