I am a Kindergarten teacher in a very low income neighborhood in the Bronx. Our families cannot afford school supplies and the teachers are not provided any materials. We buy what we can with our own money, but it does not last forever. To begin the writing process, our curriculum teaches children to express themselves on paper in any way they can. Most of the children enter our school with no previous knowledge of the alphabet or the significance of print. We encourage them to draw pictures at the beginning of the school year in order to express ideas. They then begin to label their pictures as the year progresses. This process is the foundation upon which children learn to write. Crayons are a hot commodity at our school and they go quickly, as they break and get lost. If we could have a large supply of crayons at the ready the children would not have to fight over colors and would be able to use fresh new crayons instead of stubby old ones. I am asking for a class pack of crayons and a crayon carry-all for each table.
