My Students

These kindergartners are eager and excited to learn, especially when given the right tools to help foster curiosity and authentic learning. For some of these students, it is their first time in school, and building the right foundation for them is of the utmost important.

Kinders can code, collaborate globally, and make an impact on their community with the right tools and support.

We also need to make sure our students are emotionally and physically balanced. With 77% of our school ELLs, we must give them every chance to be successful. With your help, we can give these students the opportunities and tools they need to succeed.

My Project

With these organizational materials, students cans start the year off right. Students can use their pencil boxes to learn responsibility by storing their own pencils, markers, and crayons. Students also will be able to have easy access to their boxes in these rolling carts and keep their tables clean. Further, with this rolling computer cart, students will be able to be the presenters of the class.

Starting students out right in kindergarten can set them up for success for the rest of their schooling.

This will help my students get fast and easy access to the curriculum because of how they can access the materials. These materials will help keep these kinder rockets neat, organized, and ready to learn. Help use shoot for the stars.
