My Students

The kids at my school come to school each and every day energized and ready to learn. We are located in the great state of Nebraska. Our school is not a Title I school, so funding for extra supplies is not in the budget. There are students with family serving in the military, students who are English Language Learners, and many more.

The students love to read and need more books and math centers to practice the skills and strategies they are learning every day!

Kindergarten is an important year of school for the children.

It is the first year they are working together as a team, so every child can succeed!

My Project

The students in kindergarten need more playground balls to use during recess to improve their gross motor skills and work on sharing and taking turns. We need board games to use during indoor recess. The Sequence game and the Guess Who game will help the children learn to take turns, play fair, and follow the rules of the game.

The kindergarten kids need more books to listen to so they can have a wide variety of text during the school year to practice predicting, infering, and comprehending.

We can read about spooky pets, painting, and Tacky the penguin. We need addition locks to practice our number facts and alphabet locks to reinforce our letters and sounds. The word slider game will help the children sound out letters and blend the sounds together to form words!

The kids need batteries for their reading center games and we need zip up sweatshirts for the kids who may not have a jacket for cooler weather. We also need storage containers to hold everything so it is easy to access. We need staplers and highlighters for our word work during reading rotations. The kids need the die cuts to have shapes to use during math and reading center time.
