First Graders are eager to learn how to read and write. I would use the money for supplies to make the writing work station really exciting and fun for the children. The supplies would include different kinds of writing tools and fun and exciting paper. Our classroom library has some wonderful books for the children to read, but with some extra money I could buy different items to make the classroom library more inviting. ("reading" glasses for the children, pointers, pillows, animals to read to). Kindly consider this first grade classroom for your program. I work at a school that has a high percentage of free and reduced lunch. These children would be so grateful for extra items to make learning fun and exciting for them!
