My Students

My students are kindergartners at a public elementary school. Our community and school is predominately African-American and Latino.

I have 25 students in my class, and each has an amazing personality that shines in the classroom.

I am delighted to call them my students. For most of them, this is their first year in school. They are beginning to learn their numbers and ABCs while also learning how to work with others. We are creating a welcoming classroom environment and community of leaders and scholars.

My Project

I am asking for your support to help create a learning center for my kindergarten class of 25 students.

My students are a great group of kids!

They are all little balls of energy, ready to learn and absorb information. Because kindergarten is such an important year for any student, my goal is to instill a love of learning in every student that walks into my classroom. That is why I want to create a learning center where students can play educational games and participate in activities that reinforce the fundamental skills necessary to succeed.

I am asking for class materials like reusable write and wipe sheets in order to facilitate learning. I am also asking for an Alphabet Puppet Set, Alpha-Bots, and other hands-on materials to help the students connect sounds to letters. I also have the Number-Bots to help the students with numbers and a set of play food that connects to their health curriculum.

These games will not only help my students apply their knowledge but also help them learn how to work together and strengthen our class community.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and please share this with your friends and family. Every bit helps us reach our goal! My class and I thank you all for your time and donations!
