My Students

I am a second grade teacher in the city of Chicago. There are many challenges that face my students each day. My students come from diverse backgrounds and are from low income families. The majority of our families fall below the poverty level.

Despite all of this, I am lucky to be working with a group of students who are eager and motivated to learn.

Their eagerness motivates me to find new ways to improve instruction. The pride and excitement on their faces as they are growing as learners is very rewarding.

My Project

Each day I supervise my students for recess. When the weather is nice, we go outside and enjoy the fresh air and exercise. However, the freezing temperatures of Chicago winters cause us to remain inside during our recess time.

How do you keep 28 second graders from going stir crazy during the long winter months?

These sets that I am asking for will help me to do this. My students love working on building things and solving puzzles. These class sets of Magna-Tiles are a fun and engaging way to keep my students entertained during recess time.

Thank you for considering the funding of this project. My students and I greatly appreciate it!
