My Students

I currently have twenty 4-year old students that are all on target developmentally and very excited to learn and progress in school.

Each of the students is developmentally on-target for their age.

The community we live in is supportive and will try to support the students in many ways, however, funding can be a roadblock at times. Each of the students in my classroom is eager to learn new skills and being able to get up and move is always very motivating for them.

My Project

Studies have shown that children's early interests directly influence their interests later in life. It is my goal to set a positive early learning experience for my students, these materials will be a large step toward reaching my goal.

I am requesting birdhouse kits and safety gear; goggles, apron and hammers for our activity that will help my students brains find creative solutions to real-world design that we can use outside our classroom windows.

My goal is to give my students an age-appropriate hands-on experience of what it is like to work construction. This will give them that extra push toward brighter futures and a more successful tomorrow! By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, but you will also ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
