My Students

I teach twenty eager-to-learn kindergarteners in a Title One school.

My students show up everyday 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

I have recently moved to a new school and am working hard to stock it with new learning games, puzzles, and activities. My students love working together with a partner or small group in cooperative learning groups.

We need these learning games, puzzles and activities for students to work together in literacy and math stations.

The puzzles and games all provide practice for a variety of learning objectives, like counting, learning the alphabet, building words and beginning reading standards. These materials will be used weekly by students and enjoyed for many years. Thank you in advance for helping my little learners!
