Ms. McCarthy from Chicago IL is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need sweatbands, floor hockey sticks, and a children's plastic golf set to continue working on our sports skills.
My students are in a blended classroom that consists of a diverse crowd of special needs students, English language learners, and students from the general education population.
My students range in ages from three to five years old.
As a Special Education teacher, I serve a diverse crowd of students with special needs. The students I serve are mostly African-American and Hispanic. My students come from low socioeconomic circumstances. The parents and community try their best to support these students. These students inspire me to be a better teacher and person, and I learn from them daily. The uniqueness each of my students brings to the class is unimaginable.
This year is the first year we are piloting a new program called "Young Athletes." The Young Athletes Program is an innovative sports play program for children ages 2-7 with and without intellectual disabilities, designed to introduce them into the world of sports. The benefits of this program have been proven worldwide. First and foremost, these activities will help the children improve physically, cognitively and socially. This program will also raise awareness of the Special Olympics Program and serves as an introduction to the resources and supports available within Special Olympics.
Our preschoolers are so lucky to be able to participate in Young Athletes with the surrounding schools, unfortunately, because there are so many schools, not all parents are allowed to attend our field day so we are going to hold our own field day to share with the parents the achievements of their Young Athletes.
We are requesting headbands to add to the excitement of the variety of sports challenges our students will be participating in. I am also requesting children's plastic golf clubs as well as floor hockey sticks in order to extend the experience of the gross motor skills we will be concentrating on for our field day!
