My Students

My Pre-Kindergarten students are enthusiastic "college bound" learners! They are intelligent, young students, but the reality is that their socioeconomic status and zip codes put them at an academic disadvantage, as compared to their more affluent peers. They are in dire need of having access to quality materials, both inside and outside of the classroom. However, providing them with the supplies necessary to learn in this context is a struggle due to severe budget cuts.

For most of my students, this is their first experience in a structured learning environment.

I want to be able to make their first learning experience hands-on and fun!

My Project

Learning letter names and sounds is the basis for learning how to read and write. Learning number concepts is the basis for understanding higher-level math skills. Some students greatly struggle with acquiring these foundational skills, making literacy and math learning challenging and difficult. To help overcome these barriers, I want to provide my students with the opportunity to continue building their literacy and math awareness skills over the winter break, and at home throughout the school year, by giving them each a copy of the Leap Frog DVD: Math Adventure to the Moon/ Letter Factory. This DVD will be a gift to each of my students for the winter holiday season.

I want to make sure that my students have the best chance at academic success and provide them with resources that make learning fun and help to close the achievement gap!

In addition, I want to provide each of my students with a set of hats and mittens to stay warm this winter season. To celebrate the last day of school before the winter holiday, I would also like to replace our broken external DVD player and Polar Express DVD.

Please help provide my students with the tools needed to be successful, and warm, learners this holiday season. Early intervention is crucial to student success. Please consider helping provide each of my students with a gift that will not only assist in giving them a strong educational foundation, but also make it possible for them to continue being successful and motivated life-long learners at home.
