My Students

My students live in a rural town and their parents are mostly farm workers. Therefore, it is difficult for my little ones to buy materials needed to continue learning during our distance learning time. However, my students are very eager to learn even though we are not in our physical classroom. They continue to surprise me by their efforts to show me their assignments either online or by sending me pictures. They are the best.

My Project

I would like to provide my young students with school supplies. I would love to be able to provide them with crayons, pencils, watercolors, and play dough. These items would allow them to practice writing using a variety of tools to make their long distance more enjoyable. I would also like to provide them with magnetic letters, white boards and dry erase markers. Additionally, I would love to be able to provide them with some fun learning games so they can use during the time they are to remain indoors.
