I work with an incredible group of diverse kindergarten students. Most of the students come from low income families, so educational materials are hard to come by.
Early childhood grades have always been something that is very near and dear to my heart.
There are so many different cultures and personalities, but the one thing that my students all have in common is that they all love to learn and work together as a classroom community. They each have a lot to offer and share.
Every now and then I come across a student who continually brings in the same dirty blanket and bed sheets back to school on a weekly basis. Or I may send home a set of dirty clothes and the fresh pair of emergency clothes never comes back to the classroom. Unfortunately, I have a few of those students in my class this year. I would love to have a portable washing machine to help clean their emergency clothes and blankets.
The impact this will make on our students will be tremendous.
Having freshly laundered blankets for some of my higher needs students would be a tremendous gift. This is the only way I can ensure that all of students will always have clean emergency clothing and blankets.
