Things We Need to Succeed in 2nd Grade

My students need graphic organizers, magnetic manipulatives to model in class, chart stand to display fundations work, and math manipulatives to have in their toolkits.

My Students

Ever wonder what it would be like to be in school without the necessary materials you need to succeed in class? My students are lacking the suffice resources to help them achieve their potentials, mostly, in math.

I teach special education in a self contained classroom in a Title I school in New York City.

My students are very eager, energetic, curious 2nd grade students. They are very visual and tactile learners. I firmly believe with the proper resources, they can achieve anything! My students are also very needy. They range from Kindergarten reading level to one student reading at a 2nd grade level.

My Project

I am requesting a lot of math manipulatives for my class because it is a tool they can use at all times during math and especially assessments. I want them to be able to count change by touching the money, I want them to be able to have their own clocks to practice telling time and not just look at a clock that I drew by hand. The magnetic resources I requested are all for the children to have a better visual and be able to understand and apply what I did with the fraction pie, or base-10 blocks. I also requested sight words from K-3rd grade because they are displayed in a way that will help them properly write the words on paper. It also correlates with the Fundations program we are using. I need the chart paper to display the standard sound cards for them to see and be able to make it interactive for them to make words.

These materials are something that will help them master everyday skills such as counting money and telling time.

They will be thrilled to have all these things available to them. These children have been in the same room for 3 years in a row and this year they have a new teacher (me), and I want to give them a whole new look from what they are used to seeing and using in that room. The classroom is a little snug but with the proper materials, size does not matter.
