My Students

My kindergartners are eager to learn! Their conversations and laughter is proof of their learning. And their minds are full of curiosity. The excitement in their faces just brings out all the joy in the classroom. They want to be engaged and recognized.

My Project

My students need the resources which include supplies and materials that will make their learning engaging. Digital tools do not meet the needs of all students. Due to limited funding, our school can’t provide with the necessary materials to engage students in hands on activities or projects. My students will be able to use the resources at home to help them solve problems. The resources will make their learning more meaningful. My kindergartners are eager to learn. Developmentally, they need to have hands on experiences. Exploration will continue to spark their curiosity, contribute to their creativity and academic growth.
