First Year Teacher Needs Supplies and Centers!

My students need supplies for centers. I need a listening center, puzzles for centers, and pencil boxes to help keep our desks organized when sharing (AM and PM class).

My Students

Kindergarten calling on centers! Our class is in search of a listening center. We need to be able to differentiate, use technology, and learn at the same time. The materials I am requesting will greatly help improve the centers we do have and even create more (such as the listening center).

My students are a fun and energetic group of children.

They love to be engaged and they learn best when they do not realize they are even learning. My students are in Kindergarten and we live in the state of Utah. I have high students and some that are quite low. I believe a listening center is a great way to differentiate in an independent manner.

My Project

Centers are successful when they are engaging. I believe a listening center will do just that. A listening center allows for me to challenge all my students at different levels, and to challenge them in an independent way rather than time working with the teacher. Also we have a small classroom, and storage and organization can be a problem at times. We use desks, and a pencil box will be perfect to keep student supplies organized when sharing desks. My students also love puzzles and animals. I know that they will truly enjoy using the animal puzzles.

I am a first year teacher and want to provide my students with the best educational experience possible.

I believe that centers are successful when engaging, and to do so I need more supplies. Please help me provide the best year possible for my group of kindergarten students in an engaging and organized way.
