One thing I would use the $500 gift card for in my classroom is for some more lamps and energy efficient bulbs. Some children have a hard time concentrating under the bright overhead lights. I've found that working with a few lamps helps those children focus a little better. Right now I have three lamps that provide some light but need a few more as well as more energy efficient bulbs. Another thing I need in my classroom are individual CD players, batteries, and storybooks with CD's. A component of our literacy program includes listening to reading so it would be great to have enough players and stories so that any child who wanted to listen to a story had the supplies to do so. And finally, I would spend the rest of the $500 gift card on my students. Many of my students have no access to school supplies or books when they are at home. I also provide snacks for a couple of students to take to lunch each day. Thank you so much!
