Ms. Nelson from Lithia Spgs GA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

I'm Kindergarten Ready

Help me give my students necessary supplies such as pencils, crayons, glue sticks, and books needed to help them get their Kindergarten year off to a great start. Also, we need flexible seating which lets them get their wiggles out.

My Students

My students are superheroes in disguise. They are eager and ready to learn every day. They love having fun while learning. My students love hands-on activities and using manipulatives to help facilitate and guide their learning. My students inspire me to be the best teacher I can be for them!

My students are Kindergartners who are trying to learn new information to be very successful in first grade and on.

My school is located within Georgia, and a good amount of our students are homeless. In my classroom, my students are accustomed to receiving a variety of learning strategies, group work, and learning styles to make sure that I reach and teach each student. My students are so filled with tons of excitement for learning, and it makes me proud to be their teacher this year!

My Project

The material and supplies I am requesting will benefit both my students and parents, who are not able to purchase these particular school supplies for their child. Last year, I had a lot of students that needed the flexible seating option, but I do not have the funds to provide them with that option.

The donation of this project will help provide balance balls and carpet spots to my incoming Kindergarten students and provide them with the necessary supplies needed to thrive and succeed, such as books, crayons, and scissor caddies.

I plan to use these materials to help facilitate my students in becoming better writers and learners. These materials will also help my students achieve their academic goals of mastering the necessary content for Kindergarten. It will help aid me to help my students thrive to their highest potential!
