Hello everyone! I am a kindergarten teacher in a low-income area with people predominantly from Ecuador and Mexico and also China and India. Most of my students know another language besides English. This is my third year teaching in a hard-to-staff area of New York City. I previously taught for two years in Harlem and am now teaching in Corona, Queens. Recently there has been some work done on our ceiling because the school building itself is very old and the school must make sure it is safe for students and teachers alike. While this work was done, some small items were lost or damaged; thus this proposal is asking for the replacement of those items so that my students can continue to enjoy a safe and beautiful learning environment. The items listed below are the items I am requesting, with a brief description of why they are necessary for a kindergarten learning environment: - A magnetic calendar activity center so that students can learn concepts such as days of the week, months, dates, holidays, and weather - math manipulatives which students use by themselves during math-center time after a concept has been taught by the teacher - border and paper for displaying student work I teach these wonderful kindergarten students all of the subjects, and to have these items replaced would be wonderful for all of us. Thank you so much in advance for your kindness and generosity.
