Wilson Language Letter Boards and Tiles

Reading is essential to the learning process. Some students need extra support. Wilson Language is a wonderful tool to assist in providing that support. These letter boards and tiles will allow each student involved to be fully engaged in each lesson by having their very own board with letters.

Play-doh and Watercolor paints

I am asking for play-doh and watercolor paints. Play-doh and watercolor paints are great for building fine motor skills, while making letters, words, numbers and quantities. Watercolor paints are also a great calming activities because it requires concentration and precision.

Headphones for Small Hands

As part of the SCM's technology plan, Liberty Elementary is receiving a cart of iPads for our K-2 students. Unfortunately, we do not have headphones available and none were purchased for students to use with the iPads. A classroom set of iPads would allow all students to participate only if headphones are available.

Equipment for Exploratory Learning

My class is in need of more hands-on equipment for exploratory learning. Social and emotional development is enhanced through play while promoting a growth mindset. Primary age students need these experiences to grow academically and emotionally.

Electronic Math Facts Game

I would like to have my students practice their math facts in a fun, exciting way. I would like 6 sets of multiplication war cards, 6 sets of division war cards, 5 sets of additin/subtraction war cards and 5 electronic math fact games. Students will play math gacts games in order to practice. This will allow students to gain practice with their math facts but is much more interesting than just completing a match facts timed test.

STEM Building Set

My students are very creative and hands on! They love anything that has to do with hands on building. Would like to have stem building sets! These sets will be incorporated into various subject areas as well. Students will write about what they are building or write instructions on how to build. Students will use math by predicting how many pieces needed, the shapes of the pieces, counting & problem solving. These sets will give my students endless opportunities to grow in learning and have FUN!

Book Publishing

Every year my 2nd grade class has a Parent Tea to celebrate their writings and illustrations throughout the year. The parents come to our classroom & the students share their portfolios/writings. We used to publish books for this event. The students came up with a topic, wrote a draft, published their book and did an author's page. I stopped due to the expense and time. However, I miss writing these books and want to start again. I am asking for a donation to cover the expense of these books.
