The very basic classroom supplies are needed!

My students are bright inquisitive second graders. As their teacher, my mission is to provide them with as many exciting innovative learning experiences as I can. We recently received a 3D printer and will be designing incredible objects (and creating future engineers!). However, we do not have a working stapler or wall sharpener in our classroom. If we were fortunate to receive one of the gift cards these two items would be the first purchase. I also teach in a vibrant high poverty district. Many of my students are not able to come to school with the necessary basic supplies. I would like to purchase a variety of supplies, such as pencils, paper, and art supplies, to have at the ready for whenever the students need them. Last but not least, as seen in the picture, I would like to replace our ‘last century’ tape recorder with something a bit more current. Thank you for considering this entry on behalf of my most wonderful students!
