My Students

A place for everything and everything in its place...that is our goal!

I teach in a magnet school, and I will have at least 20 enthusiastic, fun-loving kindergarteners this coming year.

The students at my school come from a wide range of family dynamics. Some live in traditional households while others live with single parents, and others live with extended family. My students' economic situations are just as varied as their family dynamics and more than sixty percent of our school qualifies for free lunch. Regardless of these factors, every one of my students always possesses a passion for learning, exploring, and creating!

My Project

We are requesting a Trofast Storage unit and bins from IKEA. We currently have a very old storage unit that is starting to fall apart, is hard to move and has a lot of wasted space that doesn't fit our needs. This storage unit will be used to store many of our basic supplies such as scissors, markers, glue sticks, and calculators. The storage unit will also provide us with space to store craft supplies and recess toys, such as water colors, paints and foam blocks. The bins are lightweight and easy for students to access independently. We are also requesting an IKEA area rug that features number spots, a measurement edge, and a number line edge. This number rug can be used for many math games and activities for lesson reinforcement. Students can throw bean bags and add the totals from the numbers they land on, we can measure how far students jump or how tall they are, and any number line is helpful when counting!

A donation to our project will help us to replace an old storage unit that that is falling apart, is heavy, and has unusable space.

All of our supplies, as well as many of our recess toys, will be in one place and it will be easy for Kindergarteners to use independently. Thank you so much for reading about and considering our project!
