My Students

Help to provide my students with the necessary materials to help them learn in a small group setting and organize all of our classroom materials!

I am a brand new teacher working in a high need school where 85% of our students are receiving free or reduced lunch.

I teach second grade students, however, their independent reading levels range from a kindergarten level to a third grade level. Within my class of 28 students, I have one student who is receiving Special Education services and another who is performing at a particularly low academic achievement level.

My Project

I am requesting a couple of different supplies for my classroom. First, I am requesting a selection of reading/writing centers. These centers will be used with both small group and whole class instruction. I am also requesting some storage tubs. Being that my classroom is a portable, there is a severe lack of storage. These tubs will be used to organize our classroom library, as well as different group materials.

Small group activities are essential for learning so that the teacher can work with students who need more intensive instruction.

These centers will help to give the rest of the class activities so that they can continue learning while the teacher is occupied with a smaller group of students. Storage bins will help to organize not only these supplies but different classroom materials to help ensure things run smoothly throughout our day.
