My students are our world. In every sense, these children are all of ours. They are yours, mine, ours. They are our future. They are our future doctors, scientists, mommies, daddies and so much more.
My students come from a variety of backgrounds and a variety of socioeconomic statuses; there are a variety of needs that are present in our classroom.
My group of students deserves every opportunity to learn, and, by providing funding, together we can make it happen.
The beginning of the school year is always an exciting time! It's especially exciting and a bit nerve-wracking for kindergarten students due to it being their first time away from their parents or caregivers. For this reason, I've selected materials that the students can use that may help calm their nerves and make kindergarten be a fun place to be! We need scented markers, a stapler, a 10-drawer organizer and other fun supplies.
Many of the materials I selected will help enhance student learning and will also provide a sense of excitement and security by allowing them to use their sense of smell.
The smells of these materials will aid in providing a fun and reassuring atmosphere. The students from previous years have loved to use smelly markers to create works of art, to practice their sight words and to make fun stories. Since we are a Title I school, students love to receive candy and treats as motivators. The organizer will come in handy as we are trying to help students start to build executive functioning skills which, in turn, will help them become better students.
Kindergarten is an exciting time, and I hope by having these materials, it'll be one year to remember!
