My 20 second graders start lining up outside our classroom a half hour before school begins. They cannot wait to get into the classroom, get comfy and begin learning. Almost all of my students come from low-income homes and most are being raised by single parents or grandparents. These hard-working families are incredibly supportive, but are struggling to make ends meet. My kiddos come to school not only to learn, but to get a warm meal, a change of clothes, and most importantly a sense of safety.
Our classroom is like their home.
Your donation will help our second grade family discover the world through books, write crazy fun stories and master mathematics in a kid-friendly environment.
My students love nothing more than snuggling up with a good book. Our classroom has tons of comfy corners where they can settle down and read. They LOVE spreading out across the room and do better when they are empowered to choose their own work spot.
A nugget is a four piece foam coach that kids can configure themselves: imagine a couch that can become a tent, a bed or even a reading castle.
The nugget will be the center of our library. My kiddos will be able to use their imagination to create a reading, writing and meeting space that is out of this world.
