I am starting with $300 for a baseball game for my class. These funds are due next Friday, May 1st. I want to be able to give my students some experiences they don't get due to the hardships their families deal with. To start, this game, but in the future...the zoo, aquarium, nature center, beach, farm, fishing, etc. They are all children with special needs and sometimes it is very difficult to teach some skills when they do not have the background knowledge/experiences needed to understand certain concepts. Experiences that are commonplace to children with different socio-economic standing and are often referenced in school curriculum. I want to be able to give them the actual experiences to correspond with lessons I teach, rather then just showing them videos as incomplete background information.
