It All Begins with Kindergarten

My students need writing supplies, such as markers, pencils, writing paper and Journals to enable them to learn to write.

My Students

Many of my students are unable to buy even basic school supplies. So, many of them come to school with the dread of knowing that their parents were unable to purchase their supplies.

Many of my Kindergarten students originate from different countries, and some of them are from America.

Ninety percent of my students receive free lunches. However, what they don't have in money, they make up for it in heart. They are some of the sweetest and most appreciative children that one could ever meet. Most of them walk into school with huge smiles on their faces and are ready to learn every day. I enjoy being able to provide them with the opportunities to experience a learning environment where everyone is treated equally. It is my joy to give them the materials that they need to succeed.

My Project

My students need writing supplies, such as markers, pencils, writing paper and Journals to enable them to learn to write. Markers will allow students to write with color in learning centers and during certain lessons. Doesn't everything look more interesting in color? I have also requested journals, writing paper, and pencils to give them the opportunity to write on a daily basis. The students enjoy creating their own stories, and the various markers will allow them that opportunity. I requested dry erase markers because they enjoy writing on whiteboards. All students enjoy writing on the white boards, and it keeps me current on their progress.

Your donations will make a difference to my Kindergarten students.

This will allow all of them to have the materials to write their letters, words, and stories. Writing is not an easy skill for Kindergartners to learn. Giving them variety and opportunity is what motivates students to learn. The markers, paper, and pencils will give all of them the same to write.
