My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I want to provide my students with engaging learning experiences.

Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.

My Project

This project is requesting a variety of materials in order to teach our kindergarten students about field day sports. We are requesting materials to make shirts so that students can work together with their class on a team. The shirts will help identify students on opposing teams. We are requesting a football target set, Egg Spoon game, water balloon station elastic straps and tug of war rope to teach students about 3-legged races, spoon/egg races, tug of war, football throwing, water balloon toss, and life-size hungry hippo. These games provide our students with opportunities to work together as a team as well as get moving physically. Please consider helping us reach our project goal! Thank you for your help!
