Supply is Low, Demand is Great
My students need lower level reading books, materials to repair worn books, books and activities about money, and a protective cover for the I-pad.
We have been learning about coins and their value, supply and demand. We discussed that we have more of a demand than supply of lower level reading books, materials to repair worn out books, and an I-pad cover. I would love to purchase more books to help them learn about coins and their value.
I have a self-contained special education classroom of 12 students that are eager to learn in their own way.
Many of my students are autistic and have difficulty focusing and learning using traditional teaching methods. The school is a high poverty school with over 75% of the students receiving free and reduced lunches. The school is a 3rd through 6th grade school and the library has a limited number of books on the low reading level of my students.
While studying supply and demand my students named things that we had a demand for in our classroom. We then looked at the supply of those items. The students have been asking for more lower level reading books and very quickly put books on the list of things that we had more of a demand than supply. I am requesting more lower level reading books, and books about coins and their value for our classroom library. Since my students are with me for 3 years and they learn at a slower rate than many other students, they get tired of reading the same few books over and over. I read to my students daily and would like to have books that teach about money in story form, and hands on activities to add to their economic education. They also requested that we put a cover on our recently acquired I-pad so it is protected.
Due to the limited funds available for teachers to purchase materials for their classroom, I have not been able to acquire these resources for my students.
I would love for my students to have my limited supply of reading materials increased and have books about money to help advance the personal financial education resources available to them. I would love to have a cover on the I-pad to protect it. Please, can you help make this happen?
