My students need a pencil sharpener (honestly we do not have one in our classroom) and a set of Bill Nye DVDs that align with CA science standards for the second grade.
It's difficult to complete your assignments without sharpened pencils. My students desperately need a pencil sharpener in their classroom! I am also requesting a set of Bill Nye the Science Guy DVDs to complement our science curriculum.
My students are enthusiastic, inquisitive, and a pleasure to teach.
They are predominantly English learners from diverse backgrounds. These children attend a Title I school in a high-poverty area. It is a school with motivated students, diligent teachers, and supportive parents. This is an environment with high expectations and a willingness to do whatever it takes to meet and exceed them.
Everyday during my "lunch break" and after school, I run to the office hoping to arrive before the other teachers that rush in to use the one working electric pencil sharpener in the office. More than twenty teachers share this one sharpener. This is time that could be spent planning and creating lessons/materials for the following day. Please help put an end to students taking class time to stand by the trash bin using a hand sharpener.
I am requesting the set of DVDs to complement our science curriculum. Bill Nye has a way of taking complex topics and breaking them down in a manner that 7 and 8 year olds can comprehend. My students love his videos and they are a wonderful way to reinforce the topics that we have been learning about in class.
It is hard to believe that teachers are requesting items as basic as pencil sharpeners.
It would be such a gift to know that my students will start each day with a sharpened pencil in their hand ready to tackle the concepts for the day.
By donating to this project, you will also help their love for science grow. Watching an engaging video that aligns with their science unit is a wonderful way to reinforce the concepts we have been exploring in class.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
