My Students

I am a new kindergarten teacher at a wonderful school on Chicago's south side. Most of my students come from low income homes. Many of my students have never attended a formal preschool, and many do not speak English. My classroom will be many of their first school experiences!

There are some of my students who will be coming to school with no school supplies

Please help us obtain these supplies so that we all can have the materials for success!

Thank you for this opportunity as well as this program. I am hopeful that this project can be funded so that my students are excited to learn!

My Project

So many of our students will not be coming to school with the supplies that they need. Most of my students are low income and cannot afford the basics materials needed in a school environment.

My students need basic supplies and manipulatives so they can start to work in all areas of our curriculum!

The construction paper will be used for the same areas but having these bright materials are so engaging! The laminating paper will be used in order to save work for years to come. The Magna-Tiles will be used for the students to build their motor skills.

My students will be so excited to use new materials! Thank you for helping all of us! We appreciate it!
