TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students some Phonetic Reading Blocks, books, LEGOS, and LEGO Building Plates so they can explore their creativity and grow their love for learning!
I love my students so much! Despite what they might be dealing with at home, they come to school joyfully, expectant of a great day, and always so eager to help. With them, a little goes a long way. A little kindness and a little positive praise can make such a BIG difference in their little world. They want to succeed at learning and know they are capable.
My students are some of the sweetest kids you will ever meet, but also some of the neediest.
I teach in an area that is of very low socioeconomic status. My students and their families don't have a lot, and because of this, most of my students come to school in need. I can't control the home environment of my students, but I can do my best to control the environment of my classroom. I want to ensure that my students always feel welcome, safe, and excited when they get to school. My desire is to create experiences for my students that will open their eyes to greater opportunities outside of the world they currently know, and I need your help.
If my project gets funded, it is going to mean something so special for my Kindergarten class. The things I am asking for include teaching manipulatives, books, and toys that are going to enhance my students life here at school, and open their eyes to greater things outside of school. I am requesting some classic story books for Classroom Read Alouds, which is such a special part of our day. I am asking for some Tweezer Tongs to help my students develop their fine motor skills. I am also requesting some hands-on Alphabet and Letter writing activities to help my students have fun learning their ABCs. Who doesn't remember their days in Kindergarten? Those are some of the best days of our lives.
I want every one of my Kindergarten students to not only learn a lot, but I also want them to LOVE coming to school each day!
Kindergarten is the foundation of their academic career where they will develop a love for learning. If my project is fully funded, the materials I have requested are going to help enrich my students learning and help my students feel excited to come to school each day. The STEM Educational Building toys, LEGOS, soft blocks, and Lincoln Logs are special things that most of my students don't have at home, and thus are things they look forward to playing with and exploring while at school.
Play is such an important part of Early Learning Development as it helps with cognitive growth, social development, and physical development. Play also promotes mathematical thinking skills, language development, and helps reduce stress, which is exactly what all students need. I want our classroom to be a place where my students want to be, and a place where they have fun learning.
