Mr. Warren’s 2023-2024 First Grade Class Amazon Wish List

Please click the link above to visit my Amazon Classroom Wish List.  Here are a couple items to note:

I am starting an insect unit and would like to order these asap.  We currently have 20 students in our class.  I would like to have a couple extra.

I would gladly accept any Legos (new or used) to add to the ones we already have in the classroom.  The sets I requested would be a welcome addition as well but I am not picky and would accept any donations of Legos!  These are great for indoor recess.

I may be adding additional items to the wish list as the school year progresses.

With the addition of Chromebooks I am always looking for on-line, educational games and software.  I have been using Blooket for about three years now.  Recently the company has decided to limit the features unless teachers purchase a Plus membership.  The cost for this is around $36 per year or around $3 per month.  If you would like to sponsor a yearly membership or even monthly membership, please let me know.  I also discovered a couple years ago and used a trial edition.  The children loved it and so did I!  If a parent or parents would be willing to sponsor this platform or Blooket, please let me know.
