My Students

We are a Title I, pre-kindergarten school. We are the largest in the area, serving approximately 500+ students. Our school accepts those who are identified as academically high-risk, and we provide school readiness activities for 4 and 5-year-old children in full-day programs.

Most of our students come from low-income households.

We have a large dual language and military population, with 100% of our students receiving free breakfast and lunch meals each day. We have 18 intelligent, curious, and eager-to-learn students in our classroom from diverse backgrounds who will benefit greatly from any support given through projects.

My Project

In our Pre-K classroom, we count, sing, play and read each day. We are learning basic math concepts in a hands on way, which is best for little learners. It is never too early to learn about financial literacy! My students are young, but we're learning to compare numbers, count, sort, add and subtract with simple math stories, and number recognition. Help me teach my students with fun and engaging math books, fine motor math concept games (sorting, counting, patterning) with the magnetic fishing game, and an actual working cash register and sliced pizza set that students can utilize in our dramatic play kitchen area!

The materials in this project will enhance my students’ math skills through highly engaging hands-on, interactive activities.

Counting and numbers books will help my students match quantity to quality. The cash register allows them to play with money, purchase items, and expand vocabulary, while problem solving with friends. While learning with these highly engaging resources, I will be able to teach my students early concepts about saving and spending, how money is used to make purchases, and making good choices based on needs and wants. Thank you for your help and contribution to ensure my students a bright financial future!
