Mrs. Pace from Charleston WV is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Success in Second Grade

My students need a printer and ink to print and display their work, a Cricut machine and accessories to help create displays, and lesson units for grammar and math instruction from Teachers Pay Teachers.

My Students

Every day, I am surrounded by the most amazing students! Even though they come from a variety of backgrounds, including race, religion, and family structure, we all work together to create a unique learning experience; we work hard at instilling a love of learning and exploring that will last a lifetime.

My students are truly exceptional!

They persevere when faced with a challenge, creatively inspire our community, and believe in one another. They are tomorrow's leaders and world-changers. They are our future and together we can help them soar to their dreams.

My Project

When school begins in August, I will be teaching second grade for the first time (after 4 years teaching 5th grade.) I want to make sure my students have the best possible year with many opportunities for success and that includes hands-on and creative ways to learn.

I want my students to realize learning can be fun as the spark of curiosity is ignited within them.

This can be achieved through investigative novel units, math exploration, and learning to express themselves with grammar activities. The items I am requesting from Teachers Pay Teachers will help me to provide a fun learning experience in all curriculum areas. By purchasing pre-made lessons I will not only be allowing more of my time to be focused on my students, rather than planning lessons, I will also be able to help support fellow teachers as the materials from TPT are created by teachers. I am requesting three novel units which include "Freckle Juice," "The Chocolate Touch," and "The BFG." I am also requesting BUMP games for addition, subtraction, and multiplication; Tangram practice; math, writing and spelling centers; comprehension mats for center time; and a math alphabet and educational songs.

Because I want my students to be able to "own" their work and to proudly display it, I am requesting a wireless printer and ink as well as a Cricut machine and accessories. I cannot wait for my students to create stories and print them off and then help to design bulletin boards that will accessorize their masterpieces.
