Help me give my students functioning calculators to assist them with completing their math work. Also, a class set of Coin-U-Lators to help them with developing their money identification and use skills.
My students participate in a high school classroom designed to educate students with severe/profound intellectual disabilities.
My special needs students are from low-income households and receive free lunch, in a school with a limited budget to provide the materials necessary for my students.
The goal of the classroom is to increase academic skills, while also developing functional life skills and increasing life and career readiness. Several of my students are English Language Learners, most come from low-income backgrounds, and several have sensory needs. My students stay with me for several years. Many come to school daily, even if they are ill, as school is a place for them to be with others, receive meals, and be comfortable.
A quality set of calculators would help my students when completing their math work. They would enjoy having newer materials that work as well. In our special education classroom, math is practiced daily. It would be wonderful for my students to finally have an appropriate and functioning set of calculators.
Coin-U-Lators are a great tool used to help students identify money and solve problems involving money.
They are a fun piece of technology that many students enjoy using like a game. Learning how to use money is so important for my students to help them function as independently as possible in their transition to adulthood.
