My Students

My beautiful kindergarten students want to remind you that "A person's a person no matter how small." They might be small, but they have big dreams and big goals. They are inquisitive, playful, energetic, and full of wonder! They love hands-on learning and are eager for rich experiences!

I want to give them as many opportunities and resources as possible this year so that they can explore, grow, learn, and develop their independence.

Thank you in advance for your donations!

My Project

Floor puzzles are a necessary component of any quality kindergarten classroom! Putting together these large puzzles helps to build spatial awareness, fine motor skills, and reasoning skills. These skills are foundational to geometry, visual arts, writing, and so much more!

Flexible seating is a must-have in any classroom, but my five- and six-year-old students especially need the opportunity to wiggle their bodies when they're expected to sit!

Sitting is hard and movement is how young people learn best! Getting some wiggle seats for their chairs will make such a huge difference in the attention span of many of my students.

Can you help us today? We would be so grateful!
