I have done this 2 years in a row. My 12 year olds destroyed everything I brought in the classroom both years. I'm not doing it again. Good luck to you.

Age appropriate playground equipment. We have to let play get away from our students. "We dont have time " "they can play when they gst home" "they don't know the material" etc. I think providing them with the time to play will open up their receptors and synapses to recieve information.

Resource: kaboom! and peaceful playgrounds are two sources to help fund this option

Maybe not in MY own classroom but we had a big laminator machine at my first school and there isn’t one at my current school... also butcher paper! You never know how useful they are until they’re gone :(

My current district has provided a 1:1 Chromebook initiave. Every student has their own Chromebook. 6th grade and above take theirs home everyday. 5th grade and below leave theirs in their classroom.

I’m looking for two things one... an outside nature trail grant to improve our trail area and do an outdoor learning area and two....funding for my parent nights I did one for each nine weeks with a cute theme with dinner and decorations with activities and guest speakers and a make and take activity to go home with. All out of my pocket because I want to build a bridge between the gap of positive communication back and forth between home and school but it was expensive four times out of the year

Those filters you can put over the awful fluorescent lights in our rooms.

I got in trouble like 10 years ago for doing the tissue paper trick. Now my room is full of strange, brightly painted lamps that I bought (and continue buying) from the restore. We have fun making them unique 😊

Calculators (4 function and Basic scientific) 20-25 of each. I have around 90-110 students per year at 3 math levels. I would be so grateful for an endless supply of calculators. Once they are damaged or not working they could be replaced automatically.

I bought my basic and scientific calculators at the Dollar Tree. Not great but they fit the purpose. Also contact Texas Instruments about grants.

I would like a reasonably sized rectangular shaped room. I always have 35 or so kids in a kite shaped room that is big enough for 25 kids. The kids can’t stand up and turn around, and I can’t walk around the room without bumping into desks, feet, backpacks, etc.

I hate weird shaped rooms! What oddity of architecture did this to us? I am in a room that has some strange angles and a wall of cabinets that make the middle of my room the place for all things “seating”, desks, carpet areas, etc. Plus, I have no windows. It’s an oddly shaped dungeon .
