My Students

My Kindergarten students reside in Canarsie Brooklyn. We are a Title I public school. Our enrollment goes down every year because of the rise of charter schools in the neighborhood. When enrollment decreases funding decreases. My kids are making the best the materials they have. They entered kindergarten with a big smiles and big dreams. We are a third of the way through the school year! We use hands on materials numerous times a day and some have gotten lost or destroyed along the way! We need your help! Please help us stock our classroom with multi- sensory materials to make learning and growing fun and accessible for everyone!

My Project

I need your help restocking our classroom! We are in need of the essentials; a reliable and quick pencil sharpener and new dry erase markers. As most of you know 5 years olds and markers do not always go well together! The first month of school we practiced how to use these materials responsibly. Now we are ready to read and write. Please contribute to our cause so we can practice our numbers and letters on our dry and erase boards. We need more practice writing them correctly so we can write full sentences and numbers to twenty by the end of the year!
