At University Center Preschool and at Maple Elementary School, teachers of special needs students asked for help to purchase supplies to support learning for their students.
In the Be Me program at University, teacher Julie Conway has created a music enrichment project for these littlest learners. Her program is centered around learning through music, music appreciation, and making musical instruments.
At Maple Elementary, teachers of special needs students personally create visual displays and teaching aids designed specifically around the needs of each student.
Below, Shauna Behm receives a grant for her K-2 LEAP classroom.
Terry MacDonald is the teacher in Maple’s Learning Center, where students at all levels come for assistance in all subject areas. Visual aids are essential to her services.
Such a pleasure to meet these students and receive their huge thanks!
Ashley Clark teaches grades 3-5 special needs students. She utilizes visual elements such as charts supporting academic concepts and activity schedules for each student, all of which create a better learning environment to promote success and independence.
Ms. Clark wrote: ” Your support of our classroom would have a great impact on my students this year and for years to come as the materials we make will be reused every year.”
