My students need ear buds because the headphones provided by the school often do not work, a rolling cart for books, and wipes. It's not hygienic to share headphones, especially the cushioned ones. I clean my classroom daily to discourage absences.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Students at our school are a diverse group that are eager to learn, kind, helpful to others, and just all around great kids from a small town. I haven't taught 2nd grade yet but I know I'm going to love it! My school is Title 1, but that doesn't stop the kids from working hard and doing their best! We keep the classroom organized, thanks to the dollar store, and clean. I try to ensure my classroom is sanitized to avoid absences of both the students and the teacher. Structure, organization, and cleanliness provide my students a safe place to learn.
Technology is a struggle in our title one school. Headphones are often broken or damaged before we get them. They are also cushioned, which makes sharing them a potential way to share lice. I buy and use tea tree oil to limit lice in the classroom but sharing headphones is a bad idea. Further, cleanliness is imperative to avoid absences of both students and the teacher. We clean daily. The book shelf is for silent reading. Students read in the hallways in the mornings before class and it's easier to roll the books than carry a book box. Students can be in charge of moving the shelf themselves. It's also great for centers!
