My Students

If you walked by our classroom you’d see 19 five and six-year-olds spread out all over the room engaged in various activities. Partners might be making words out of Play-Doh, building structures with blocks, listening to a story while laying on the carpet, working on computers or iPads, or sitting around the table reading with their teacher. We are loud and we are learning!

Each of my students has their own set of experiences that make them unique.

We have children who speak Chinese, Spanish, Arabic, and Zomi. One-third of my students are English Language Learners or come from dual language homes. Some of my little ones have never been away from their family before. Others spend hours after school in daycare​ programs until their parents are done with work. I have children who are free and reduced-priced lunch due to family hardship. Some of my children are from single family homes, and others are from blended families or dual parent households. Together, no matter our personal experiences, we are learning how to become a school family, how to learn from and respect each other.

My Project

I recently purchased an amazing morning bin tubs set on Teachers Pay Teachers. This set provides printable materials to be added with hands-on manipulatives giving children monthly themed activities to excite and educate from the minute the children walk in the classroom door.

I have printed, laminated and assembled one month of these activities and it is costly and time-consuming.

I don’t mind putting in the time because I know these materials will benefit my students for many years. The expense is becoming something I need help with to complete this set. Monthly I am purchasing ink, card stock, and lamination. This doesn’t include the hands-on manipulatives that I keep ordering.

Activities include things such as build words with cups or blocks that have letters on them and placing them on the printed mat. The kids can also look at a LEGO block’s image and recreate it. There are matching games, recording sheets and a multitude of other items you can print.

My children will enjoy exploring these morning tub bins and I will appreciate your support with this project so I can skip the monthly shopping trips for a while.
