My Students

Kindergarten students need to be engaged and involved with their learning. Dancing, singing, coloring, printing, reading, storytime, reading and math are all part of our day. Part of our daily routine consists of learning centers where the children are able to learn by doing hands on activities.

My class consists of 19 children age 5-7 in an all day kindergarten classroom in a Title I public school.

I would love to be able to meet all their diverse needs by providing more hands-on learning experiences. These activities would include learning centers and a light table like children’s museums have.

My Project

My students love to build, create and use their imaginations. Having a set of LEGOs and a LEGO table would help to foster their imaginations. In order for them to do this we would need a set of LEGOs and a table to keep them organized.

LEGOs have many educational benefits including: promotes fine motor skills, encourages team work, improves creativity, develops problem solving and mathematical thinking, improves communication skills, develops persistence, improves self-esteem, developing lateral thinking and planning skills.

Your donation would help improve my Kindergarten students learning environment while having fun at the same time. Thank you in advance for your donation.
