Check out their web page. They have a lot of great ideas. The games are fantastic. They have different subject cards, but all the games have the same rules, it's so easy for them to play without supervision.

I am in the same position you are! This is my first year and I replaced a teacher who retired. She left me all of her stuff. I was given a large amount of money for supplies but can't think of what to get because I have a lot already!! I would appreciate suggestions as well or even suggestions on which catalogs are good to order from. I teach 2nd grade.

I used some of my money to order sturdy, bright, individual book baskets from Real Stuff.
They are wonderful.
Also, if you can...some comfy beanbags, rugs, and large oversized pillows make the room awesome during daily reading and writing time.

I'd go for some Reading Rods from Learning Resources...
they have them for all sorts of different activities and the kids can use them as an independent activity... great for working with words!!

money for Read Naturally 2nd grade

You might consider an investment in REad Naturally cds and setting up a cd player, headsets, file folders and cases, etc, to have a program to work on fluency with your kids who can decode but lack fluency.

If I had lots of money I'd get something durable that you'll be able to utilize in the future for your low kids or high kids. Usually, the middle kids resources are provided.
