Hands-On in Kindergarten

Help me give my students leveled readers to help them grow as readers every day in the classroom. Our classroom also needs some games for recess and manipulatives for hands on learning!

My Students

My students are curious, creative, and always asking questions. We are a new fourth Kindergarten classroom in our elementary school. We just started school for the first time two weeks ago. My five and six year olds enter the classroom with wide eyes, energy, and a curiosity for learning every day.

My Kinder friends are expressive, love hands on learning, and love being involved in their learning.

They love to share what they know with their classmates and their teacher and they help me grow as a teacher and person every day too!

My Project

We are starting out as a brand new fourth Kindergarten classroom in the school. As a teacher coming into an empty canvas, it is both exciting and penny-pinching. I am more than happy to spend money on my classroom and get it set up and started, however, a little help would make a huge difference.

Luckily, I have had the opportunity to collect over the years but it never feels like it is enough.

Currently, I have 20 students in my class and we are getting settled into our classroom routines and structure of a school day. I, unfortunately, do not have any leveled books for my classroom library. Kindergarten is very academic these days so we sail through reading throughout the year. These books would allow my students to pick books at their independent levels when they visit our classroom library.

We are also looking for materials to engage in hands-on learning. In Kindergarten, we are constantly moving. We need these materials like letter tiles, letter beads, etc... to engage our learning while honing in on our skills. Any of these materials would be greatly appreciated! Thank you again for checking out our project!
