My Students

I´m a teacher in a Bilingual Title I (low-income) school. Most of my students are immigrants or are the 1st generation of their family born in the US. These children face unique challenges such as extreme poverty, a language barrier, and cultural isolation. Their special situation means that they require specific types of support, so they can fully integrate into their new environment.

My students are curious, attentive, and enjoy learning.

Like all children, my students are very active. They like to hop, skip, jump, and dance. They love to tell and retell stories. In the future, I hope they can tell a joyful story about their Kindergarten experience.

My Project

I want to fully support my students by providing a safe and happy learning environment in school every day. Primary journals and chart paper are great tools for kindergarteners to practice writing in order to master the fine motor skills required to write legibly. These journals will help them because they will trace letters and numbers and practice writing in complete, correct sentences. They will become more confident in their writing skills.

Your generous donation to our Kindergarten project will improve my students ability to express and communicate their creative ideas effectively.

They will be able to see their own growth as they progress through their journals from day 1 to day 180 of Kindergarten, and learn how to organize and display their knowledge. Just like last years students did!
