Our class is comprised of 17 energetic and curious 3-5 year olds. Several different cultures and family structures are represented. All of our students speak English, but several also speak another language at home. We serve low socioeconomic families by providing early learning activities, breakfast, lunch, and snacks for the children. Additionally, we provide health information and other supports for the families.
We consider everyone as part of our school family!
Parents/guardians join us once a week for Family engagement activities that connect to our learning objectives. Our parents also volunteer in our classroom and are an integral part of our school.
My students love to touch, feel, explore, and wonder with all sorts of materials. Our classroom's portable sink recently broke and is unable to be fixed. Without this sink, it is difficult to safely participate in STEM and art activities because we have no place within the room for access to water for experiments or to wash our hands.
An in-the-room portable sink would permit us to do so many STEM and art activities that require a water source.
Additionally. a portable sink is a time saver for all the times we must wash 17 sets of hands for breakfast, lunch, and snack. The portable sink encourages students to be independent of the teacher as they use the sink on their own. We even have assigned the job of taking care of the sink (turning water on/ff and squirting the soap) that is a highly coveted responsibility in our room!
We have plenty of art and STEM materials, but we are currently on hold until we have a portable sink! We appreciate any donations that put us back in business!
