My students need a computer workstation.
Most of my Special Education students experience greater learning with intense visual and kinesthetic stimulation than the typical elementary student.
Computerized math and phonics games excite and engage my students while they are learning basic math skills. My district purchased an entire math curriculum for my Special Education students that includes computer games and intervention CD's for all five levels in this math program. These CD's allow students to generalize and sharpen their newly acquired math skills while I work with others who are working on other math levels. Unfortunately, my classroom is small. The small area in the picture is the only location in my room with access to the school's network. At the beginning of the school year, I was given a new computer. The school's staff technology support (STS) individual left the other computer in my room with hopes of setting up a student work station where my students could use the new math CD's or work on writing projects for other classes.
The problem is that my school keeps increasing it's enrollment every year, and there isn't a spare desk at the moment. Having a small computer and printer stand will free up space for a student computer station. Also, this workstation won't be moved to another classroom for use as a desk for a new student. My Special Education students will be assured of the use of a computer station throughout the school year.
I know that a small, inexpensive computer and printer stand doesn't sound like something that will make a great difference in a Special Education student's learning, but with your help they will gain confidence in the math skills they master while having fun interacting with the computer games. By supporting this request for such a small thing, you also help me to use the new math program with fidelity. Your support for my request enables me to guide my Special Education students to make the gains in math the research shows can be made with this new math program. All of my students will be grateful for your kindness, especially the sixth grade boy who has become fixated on becoming an electrical engineer and wants to improve his math skills.
