My students need five subject notebooks in order to create interactive journals.

We are located in an extremely overcrowded elementary school in New York. We work very hard and appreciate learning through laughter, fun, and play. It is a long school day when all we do is sit in our seats and work.
You often hear an explosion of laughter coming from my classroom.
A second grade is an awesome place for any child to be. I am a second-grade teacher for a very eager and excitable group of children. I am truly a lucky teacher.
One thing that could break anyones heart is the look on a child's face when you ask for notebooks. Many of my students simply can not afford them. But the perfect notebook could make school a place of learning, not embarrassment when you don't have the notebook everyone else has to work in. Another benefit would be organization. If you have ever seen a second grader's desk you would gasp with horror. It is generally a complete mess due to too many notebooks. Imagine a neat, orderly desk with only one five subject notebook, not five individual notebooks. A desk is very limited on space. Between text books, notebooks and work books there is hardly room to slide a piece of paper in the desk. To alleviate this problem we could sure use five subject notebooks. Now instead of the mad rush looking for the correct notebook for a subject, children can simply take out the one notebook and go to the right section. I envision orderly desks and calm happy children.
