My Students

Do you remember the magic of listening to a story on a cassette? It can bring a story to life!

My class is full of energetic boys and girls who are excited about learning!

I have 10 girls and 12 boys in a full day kindergarten class that we fill with the love of learning. Our school, of over 400 students, has high expectations of our students to become readers and leaders.

My Project

The supplies and bean bag chairs that I have requested will provide a cozy and comfortable atmosphere at our listening center. We need an additional Tag Reader for our set of books. The children will also develop fine motor and gross motor skills playing on the town rug with cars and vehicles for a community.

Your help in providing these items for our class will truly enrich the learning experience and environment and provide that "magical" feeling in the kindergarten classroom for many years to come!
