Basic Necessity II

My students need copy paper to reinforce reading and math skills.

My Students

Every classroom should be able to say they have an ample supply of paper for the school year. This is not the case in our Kindergarten classroom.

I serve twenty-six kindergarten students who live in the heart of the mountains of Kentucky.

They are bright, energetic, and very active children. They are at a critical time in their lives, the beginning stages of reading, writing, math, and the arts. In addition, they are learning critical character education skills

My Project

I am requesting copy paper to be able to provide my students with the necessary reading and math practice handouts. In addition, students need to be able to express themselves through writing with this paper. Kindergarten is a time in which students need visuals to aid them in their understanding of skills being presented, skills to include phonics, phonemic awareness, comprehension skills, fluency, and writing. I want to provide my students with copies of shared readings rather than just have it projected for all to see. My hope is to create shared reading journals with this paper. This is a journal that will house copies of all their weekly readings to practice during self selected reading time. It will be sent home over the summer, providing them with a collection of readings to practice.

Students should not have to worry about having the basic necessity of all classrooms....PAPER.

By giving to this project, you will be opening doors that would otherwise remain closed. Be a part of providing a basic staple of every classroom.
