My Students

Kindergarten is where it all starts! My class is made up of 20 eager little learners. Even though they come from very different backgrounds, my class is a place where all children can have the same opportunities and experiences on a daily basis. Kindergarten students are naturally curious about everything. They learn by doing and they are so excited about everything we do. I want my children to have everything that they need because having the proper resources can make all the difference.

My Project

Kindergarten students are busy, busy, busy! We are on the move all day. Our lunch period is at 10:30, but our day does not end until 3:30. My little ones need an afternoon snack to keep them going each day. Unfortunately, many of them are not able to bring a snack from home, and it is not provided by school. I try to provide snacks for those students who do not have them, but this gets expensive as the year progresses.

I am requesting items such as popcorn, animal crackers, goldfish, crackers, goldfish, and pretzels to provide daily snack for my students.

Children need their basic needs met in order to be ready to learn. Just wait and see what happens "if you give a kid a snack".
