Learning Continues After Sandy....Flood Destroyed My Classroom

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our students come from low income families that were hit hard by the storm. It is important for the children to have materials to keep them actively engaged in their learning and instruction. Your donations will help make their learning more effective as well fuel their emotional needs.

Our students are 3 and 4 years old.

They come from an area that was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. Many of them were temporally relocated. Our class has been relocated twice. The materials that you will supply will help engage them in the learning process in fun and creative ways. These materials will allow my students to work with their peers to develop social vocabulary, fine motor skills and gain knowledge in all subject areas.

My Project

My project is important because it will impact the young learner in many ways. My students need toys, art supplies and manipulatives for learning and exploration. These materials will help engage them in the learning process in a comfortable manner. It will also, help them make emotional connections and bring continuity during this difficult time.

My students need educational materials that were lost during the storm.

These donations will provide them with things to serve their educational, social and emotional needs. Your donations are greatly appreciated.
