I am a Kindergarten teacher at a Title 1, public school in New York. I currently have 18 children in my class. Many of my students come from low SES homes, and can not afford basic school supplies.

Because of extreme budget cuts, my school will no longer be able to supply us with basic school supplies. Unfortunately, because of the economy its getting harder and harder to supply my students with basic items that are needed for everyday learning.

My students need notebooks and math journals to record all their work as part of an assessment and study tool. I am also asking for a set of Beat the Clock math set to help motivate and encourage students to study and become more fluent in math facts. This set will not only motivate the students, but it will help them learn to assess themselves and understand where they are having difficulties.

Your generous donation will help my students have the basic supplies they need to develop important early math skills needed to succeed in elementary school.
