My Students

The majority of our amazing Pre-K students (98%) come from bilingual households and receive free or reduced-price lunch. Many of these children do not have the necessities they need at home to fully be prepared for school each day. Many days, it is difficult for them to function at one hundred percent when they come to school, due to the lack of nutrition and necessities at home. They take what they have, however, and make the most of it. They may not be able to provide pencils or paper, but they are never without a smile and hug.

My Project

The use of attractive material is important for the development of different skills and abilities in children from 4 to 5 years, but more importantly to hook them into learning. Material that captivates and engages students so that they are driven with enthusiasm to explore, manipulate, create and learn. It is for this reason that I ask for your help to provide to those who need it most and add an exciting new dimension to color and light activities. This material will innovate the learning process and it will allow our kids to explore the properties of colors, shapes, patterns and develop more Math skills.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student engagement and focus, you will help to increase and promote their academic achievement.
