My Students

Our school is in a small town with little exposure to anything beyond our community. My students tend to be from low-income households with little to offer in the form of enrichment.

My kindergarten students are excited about learning and love coming to school, despite the economic challenges of our community.

We have built a classroom family that treasures the accomplishments of each individual learner. There is a strong support for our young students in both the school and town.

My Project

Winters in northeast Ohio tend to get cold and snowy! Playing outside is often impossible. My kindergarten students will frequently be inside during their break in our full day program.

Purposeful play with toys such as alphabet locks, magnetic blocks and construction materials will strengthen our time indoors.

Providing these materials will make recess valuable and educational. Hands on learning with these items will increase socialization, stem skills, knowledge of the alphabet and fine motor skills.

It has been well established that play is the work of children. Your support of our classroom will help to build a foundation that will make a difference for years to come.
