I am a second grade teacher at an inner-city school. I have 23 students who are eager to learn and love to take advantage of any learning tools they are given.
My class consists of 23 eager to learn 2nd graders with varied academic abilities.
Our district has been pushing the use of classroom centers, yet do not give the teachers any materials to work with. Luckily, I have had many of my centers projects on donorschoose.org funded. Although the center activities are great, we still need a little help getting organized!
My students have started working in centers, and they seem to be somewhat effective. At times, they can get a little restless because my centers need to be a bit more organized. Having a catty at each table with pencils, crayons and whatever else they need will also keep them focused and not worrying about getting crayons, pencils, etc from their desk. I am also requesting a timer. When my student's hear it beep they will automatically know to go to the next center without me having to raise my voice or tell them.
Your donation would ensure that this year and next students would have the essential tools for learning.
I very much appreciate your consideration in this matter and sincerely hope you will view my request favorably and provide the requisite funds have the basic tools they need for success.
