My Students

My students are... well, me. They are growing and learning so much in Kindergarten, and they continue to impress me every single day. They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners. They are mini inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet. They are budding readers, writers, world travelers, scientists, teammates, helping hands, teachers, and they are our hopes. They are our future, and I want to give them a great start to their long successful career.

My Project

These blocks and manipulatives are a wonderful way to foster STEAM skills in our Kindergarten classroom. They are engaging, and the children would love the opportunity to work with them and increase their knowledge of STEAM skills. I am also looking forward to working with the children in demonstrating how to use these blocks as tools for everyday learning. Thank you for this amazing opportunity! I hope you will consider donating to this wonderful cause in order to help my kindergarten students gain the critical STEAM knowledge they need in order to prepare them for future endeavors. Thank you for your time!
