Great Use of SCARCE Resources!

"Once again, I want you to know how very grateful I am that you exist. The materials I have found at SCARCE and the ideas they generate are just wonderful. I am so excited to share those ideas with you just as I have been sharing the materials with the other teachers in my Special Needs program."

The teachers from this center developed very creative lesson plans with materials they have gathered from SCARCE. Our team was so deeply touched with their letter, and we wanted to share their excellent examples to inspire you with your special needs children. We thank the teachers of this cooperative for sending such thoughtful examples of their lesson plans. We’re so thankful for the meaningful work that you are doing at your school!
