Mrs. Dixon from Stockton CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

That. That There! What's That Called?

Help me give my students magnetic language rods, soft feely box, fine motor skills games and other language building activities that I can easily carry between all my schools.

My Students

As a speech language pathologist, I work with a diverse group of Pre-K students (three and four years old) from primarily low socio-economic environments. I provide therapy to students with speech and language impairment, autism, intellectual disability, cleft palate, orthopedic impairment, and bilingual students. Many of the students have no verbal language.

I visit 7 schools throughout the week, including a classroom with students having a dual diagnoses of autism and intellectual disability.

Each student is unique and has their own way of learning.

My Project

I need colorful and engaging materials that are easy to carry everywhere I travel! Going to 7 schools to see three- and four-year-old students who all have a speech or language impairment really keeps me on my toes, but some days it can be hard to keep all of the little ones actively engaged.

My students all have so few (or no) words to verbally express but so much to say!

I am requesting paint daubers for activities they can show their parents and practice the learned concepts; Fine Motor and Touch and Match games to practice turn-taking and saying nice things to friends; hands on toys (Building Language 3-D Lotto, Story Sequencing Cards, and Create-A-Burger Sequencing Stacker) to help increase vocabulary by engaging multiple senses; a timer and write and wipe pockets to keep me on time; as well as Mystery Boxes to make surprises extra fun!
