I am a first year teacher who is eager to find the necessary resources so that my class can be successful. Due to budget cuts our district has had to cut back on the supply budgets. The children I work with do not have the means to purchase even the basic supplies. Our class would really benefit from having a library area. Pillows are a great way to have the students in a reading corner to read quietly. A pencil sharpener is needed to allow my students put their thoughts on their pages. I have listed a color printer to be able to print visuals for students to utilize throughout the room. The organization tools are needed for myself to better distribute their work back to them. As for the letter trays, my students will utilize these with their word work time during their centers. The map will be a big help with a huge travel lesson that I have planned for them. Research has shown that hands on learning is one of the best ways for a child to remember their learning experiences. I intend to make this a great "hands on" school year using these items on my list.
