Distance Learning

Help me give my students supplies, books, reading, writing, and math tools, and a snack to support them through this difficult time.

My Students

My students are individual and unique yet all share a love for learning. Each student lights up with pride when they are learning and growing. My first grade students have a thirst for stories and love discussing what they have read about. They are very proud of their success in all subjects - reading and writing, math, science, humanities, and mindfulness - they love to share what they have learned. They are incredible little artists and express themselves through drawing. Lego building is a favorite playtime in my class during recess and my students make very impressive designs.

Though my students face many challenges, it is inspiring to see the love they have to share, the pride they show, and the incredible growth they have made.

My Project

The materials you will donate will give my students the opportunity to practice reading and writing at home. They will be able to practice math in a fun and real world way. They will be able to use their creativity to draw and write along with their lessons.

Your donation will not only give them an incredible dose of love and support by reminding them that they are not alone, but it will allow my students to use different modes of learning.

Most of my students do not have a library of books to choose from at home or supplies to write and draw. These donations would mean the world to me and to the students in my class.

Thank you!
