    My room parent just asked me to send home a list of dream items for my classroom. Well, dream items would be something like a smart board but I'm pretty sure that's not what she is looking for! I need some ideas - pathetic but I just can't think of anything! Any suggestions of things you just love having in your classroom? I teach second grade...thanks!

    1. Bookstore gift cards (for guided reading booksets, leveled readers for independent reading, non-fiction resource books)
    2. Educational Cds/DVDs
    3. FLIP pocket video camera
    4. digital still camera
    5. new/additional electric pencil sharpener
    6. iPod and iPod speakers

    That's what I would ask for for my classroom (wish someone WOULD ask me for a wish list!)

    Oh, how about class sets of calculators or timers; can you use those?

    Every once in awhile, our principal will ask us for a wish list (hasn't happened in the last few years, though!) and I got a large area rug and six bean bags. SO fun for the kids. You could also ask for lamps to light up your library, or book baskets. I also love having plants around the room, so maybe those too.

    I was once asked the same thing and I asked for (and got!) a new CD player and a really nice, teacher-grade electric pencil sharpener.

    I'd spend a little time this weekend browsing in an office supply store and looking at lakeshorelearning.com to get some ideas about you can really use.
