My Students

My Kindergarteners come from multicultural backgrounds and with the diversity comes a wide range of learners. Our community school accommodates English Language learners and students with emotional and traumatic needs. The majority of our students receive free or reduced price lunch.

Since many of my students are entering the classroom for the first time, I hope to provide them with the best learning experiences to be confident scholars using high-quality materials that every student deserves.

My class is energetic and eager to learn how to read, write, count, and explore the world through our classroom.

My Project

We would love to have wobble chairs and an easel to transform our classroom into a more active learning environment. Currently, we use a broken easel held together by binder clips.

All of my students enjoy rocking on their chairs and moving from the front of the room to the back to learn the alphabet and phonics on the easel.

It is a necessity for my students to come up to the easel to read big books, write words, and make sentences on pocket charts. It strengthens their literacy skills while building confidence. The wiggle chairs will be available for my more active students to counteract excessive sitting and affirm the value of implicit learning.

Your kind donation will ensure that kindergarteners are able to be more active while they learn around the classroom. It will also give them a sense of ownership and enable them to become invested in their own education.
