Kindergarten Is A Picnic!

My students need paper for classroom work, folders to keep their work in throughout the year, and various Math games for station time.

My Students

Do you remember your very first day of Kindergarten? The excitement, the fears, the unknown... Well, my students getting ready to set out on the Kindergarten adventure and need your help to get the year started off in a wonderful way!

My class will be full of excited Kindergartens with lots of curiosities and a wonderful love for learning.

School is new and fun for my students and I get to see smiling faces each day (except for those few tears when we first begin)! Our school is located in a poverty stricken area of the county so many of my students find great comfort in a welcoming and comfortable classroom. Many of my students will be exposed to technology for the first time and receive resources that would not normally be afforded to them. I also teach in a school where we have over 50% military enrollment. My husband also currently serves in the Army, so giving these children and all of my students the best Kindergarten experience I can is my highest priority!

My Project

With these resources, I will be able to provide a wonderful beginning to an exciting year for each of my students. Our county is not able to provide funding for all of our needs, so I am trying to prevent those needs from not being met! Your donations will help each student gain skills in Math, as well as, provide essential materials for lessons across every subject. These resources will make a dramatic difference in the lives of my students!

“The mediocre teacher tells.

The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” ~ William Arthur Ward Help me inspire my students! To some... paper, folders and a few games may not look very inspiring, but to those who need it in order to make a change for the better... it means so much! My students come to school with fresh eyes, eager minds, and open hearts, and these resources will allow me to create an unforgettable Kindergarten year for each of them!
