Everything I Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten

My Students

I teach twenty eager-to-learn kindergarteners in a low socioeconomic school.

My students show up every day excited to be at school and ready to learn.

Unfortunately, many of them do not have traditional learning materials at home that foster learning through creativity and play. I need your help updating the materials in my classroom. Due to economic strains, our classrooms are suffering. Without your help, it is impossible for me to purchase things to update learning materials, furniture, and books.

My Project

My students need a book display for our classroom library and reading center.

My kindergarteners love the reading center, and love choosing their own books to read.

This book case will allow me to display books specific to the topics we are learning about, as well as readers for independent reading practice. The metal shelves will hold the rest of our classroom library books, that are sorted into plastic bins by topic. All books will be available and organized for students to use the classroom library independently. This is very important for young learners, who are beginning to explore learning materials independently.
