Ms. Cunha from Carteret NJ is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A MINION reasons we need these things!

My students need white boards, a pencil sharpener, play food, and other dramatic play materials.

My Students

Every morning my kindergarten class comes in ready to learn and eager to do "work" and play. We use the little supplies we have in class to learn as much as we can in all types of ways.

Our classroom is filled with 15 boys and girls eager to learn!

They are very caring, open minded and so aware of their surroundings. They understand that school is where they learn to help be the change in the world. Although they are only kindergartners, they have such a simplistic understanding of the world around them.

My Project

Our class will be able to use these materials EVERY DAY! We wont have to hand sharpen our pencils anymore or have to borrow the sharpener from the library with this new pencil sharpener. We could use the whiteboards for centers, whole group and fun games. The play food and other dramatic play materials will help to make our barren kitchen set more imaginative for our class.

This project will be another step closer to providing my students with an education they deserve.

Just like every child, they should have an endless supply of resources so they can expand their knowledge.
