My Students

Second grade is not only the year kids learn triple-digit addition and how to persuade a reader; it is the year kids learn about their world and how they fit into it.

My classroom is a remarkably diverse community.

The students in my classroom come from a town that has people of every race, religion, and socioeconomic status. My classroom is also the inclusion classroom, providing diversity in learning as well.

My Project

During a normal school year, students in my classroom play together during indoor recess. They draw pictures, build with LEGOs, play games, read books together, or work on our class jigsaw puzzle. This year, none of this can happen.

This year, the kids need to learn to play independently.

Due to this, I need extra indoor recess supplies. I am looking to add STEM and art toys to continue the students' logical and creative thinking during their play time. These toys would be collected, sanitized, and rotated weekly.

In a year of unknowns, help me give my kids a little joy through play!
