I am a full day kindergarten teacher at an elementary school in San Francisco's Chinatown district. My students love to come to school. They are rarely absent. They are with me from 8:40 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. My classroom is a comfortable, safe place where they can learn, talk, and play with other children. Most of my students live in 1 room apartments or studios in or around Chinatown.
My students are energetic 5-year-olds who are second language learners, learning English as their second language. Being second language learners, they need many different activities to develop their oral and written English. The materials I am requesting are 1 tabletop writing center, 1 stamp, draw and write story center and 4 stamp pads. Having writing supplies and having them easily accessible to my students will encourage and support their continuous writing progress.
Each year I have 20 students. The writing center, stamps and stamp pads will last many years and help many little 5-year-olds develop their written English.
