"Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one." I love my job! I get to work with the most amazing young learners every day. We have a diverse student population represented in our school.
My class is packed with terrific, energetic kindergarten students.
They love exploring and learning new things. The majority of my students qualify for the free and reduced-price lunch program based on family income being at or below the poverty level. We also have a high concentration of ESL and special needs students. These young learners are eager to explore everything we have to offer.
Our school district decided to bring students and teachers back to the classroom for face to face instruction. Many families in our area have been impacted by COVID and have limited financial resources for basic school supplies. We have been able to make it through the first semester using supplies we had on hand. Basic supplies like these support early development of fine motor skills in our youngest learners. We started the year with the large size crayons and are ready to move them to the standard size. They also need the support of the triangular shaped pencils to help them hold the pencil with the correct grip as they write.
Many local companies and stores have had trouble stocking these basic supplies due to COVID shutdowns and business closures.
At the beginning of the year, I couldn't find supplies like liquid glue. It was a couple months into the school year before I was able to get glue. This project would bring basic school supplies to our young students. We wouldn't have to go out searching for it at the stores.
