My Students

There are 541 students in our school. Our kindergarten classes are full to the maximum of 30 students. All of our students are economically disadvantaged. The school provides them with breakfast and lunch daily.

Each morning I am greeted with 30 bright smiles that are eager to learn.

We are in need of a whiteboard easel that is lined. I need to be able to form letters correctly in the lines to teach the children. I had an awesome board for years but it broke last year and became unsafe for the children.

The students are very energetic and full of movement. They cannot be asked to sit at desks all day. When we have center time I would like them to be able to use this board as a play school.

Please help make our class a place where the children can see the letters formed in a proper manner.

My Project

This easel is an essential part of learning the proper formation of letters and numbers. The lines that are on the board allow me to show the kindergarten how to form each letter and number.

The lined whiteboard easel is perfect for learning to read and write.

I have used one for many years with great success. Sadly, it broke and needs to be replaced.

The children really learn from the lines on the board. They will be able to properly form letters and numbers with this tool.

Please give to this needed project. These children are our future. The future is in your hands.
