My Students

As kindergartners, the classroom provides an arena to explore, imagine, and learn. Our students love to learn new things and are excited about opportunities for hands-on interactive learning experiences. My students love to be challenged through intervention stations and centers.

Opportunities, where each child is able to choose fun games or projects that help to assess their knowledge in an interactive manner, keep​ them excited about learning.

I would love the opportunity to nurture these sentiments through the addition of these supplies so that our children have the means and the opportunity to flourish within their educational careers.

My Project

Please help give my students the supplies they need to allow their creativity to shine through! Art supplies in the form of markers, oil pastels and googly eyes will help my students imagine and create throughout the year. While the laminating pockets will help their creations last a lifetime! As kindergartners, they are filled will imaginative minds that have no end. As their teacher I would like to tap into that world of color and bring it to life by way of these supplies and your help! Through this project I can create more opportunities to mix art into our everyday lessons and help them to make connections in the most creative ways!
