Distance Learning Won't Be A Challenge with Your Help!

Help me give my students everything they need to learn from home. I am asking for a number of materials students just don't have at home that they need to be successful.

My Students

My class is filled with energetic bright students. They come from a diverse backgrounds and bring a multitude of experiences and knowledge. They are excited and eager to learn, always questioning, kind, and gentle children.

This pandemic has made it difficult for a number of my students to learn, but they are doing their best.

Some of them don't have the tools they need at home, such as notebooks, pencils, and books. We have class daily online and they are doing their best with what they have, but your donation would greatly help.

My Project

The majority of my class is working hard daily to keep up with digital learning lessons. My kindergarten and Pre-K students are dedicated and love to learn. However, some of them don't have all of the materials that they need to make this transition to at home learning. I am requesting a number of materials that will make this easy for them. First of all and most importantly I am asking for double sided white boards and markers. This will allow them to be able to practice handwriting on one side and to use the other side to write out math problems. I am also requesting journals for them to keep up with their writing daily as well as soft cover books so they can create their own stories.

Given the opportunity and materials my students will bloom and be ready for whatever challenge lies ahead for them.

I've asked for watercolors and paper to let them have some fun and let their creativity shine through. Although this is a difficult time, I know they can all be successful with a little bit of help.
