Mrs. Bantsolas from Markham IL is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the basic supplies needed in the classroom to be successful. We need Velcro and dry erase markers.
I teach students with autism in kindergarten through second grades in a low poverty school. As a teacher in a low income school my students face many struggles outside of school. All of the students at my school receive free lunches due to the poverty level and because of this many of them are not able to experience things that many take for granted.
My students are silly, energetic, and love school.
We are in a self-contained school with students with autism ranging from kindergarten to 22 years old. We depend a lot on the use of visuals in the classroom to help the children be successful in their day. The students I serve have varying levels of skills and needs. My students need sensory support, visual support and picture cues to be successful.
My students are eager about learning and love coming to school!
We need Velcro, markers, magnetic tape to support students with autism spectrum disorder. The Velcro will be used to create visual supports such as schedules, first/then boards, choice boards and other individualized activities. When visual supports are added the students are more successful in the classroom.
At this level, children need many types of materials to develop their skills.
We use a lot of Velcro for our daily picture schedules, task boxes, instructional time and everything in between. Velcro is a very valuable resource for our students, especially those who are nonverbal and those who are not yet able to write. We are able to create communication systems, daily assessments and individualized work and more. The pens are used to collect data and provide a visual approach to instruction. Thank you for supporting this project and giving us the resources that we need!
