I teach at a Title I school in a high poverty area. Though our school tries to provide us with necessary materials, my wish list is constantly growing, and the amount of incentives and extras that I want to give them are too great for the school to fund. Donations would go towards providing curriculum-based learning materials and classroom supplies that would help my children get a more meaningful HANDS-ON chance to learn. I use themes to teach each week, and try to provide at least one really cool learning experience each week to go with each theme. I love to work with small groups, and need more manipulatives and games to help make that more successful. We are in need of more sets of books for leveled reading group so that I can teach with more differentiated instruction. There are many reading/language arts games and activities that I would love to purchase. In math we need more games and individual activities that can be done instead of relying on worksheets to help students succeed. A wish of mine would be to have a reading center with bean bag chairs and a nice carpet where students could go to relax and read for pleasure. I think a more comfortable place to do this would encourage more excitement in students for reading. I have several English as a Second Language students each year and an iPad would be so helpful in helping them bridge the gap between their native language and English. Any help that I get would go toward making my classroom a very interactive and awesome place to be. Thanks in advance for considering helping our classroom be all that it can be!
