Mid-Year Supplies Needed!

My students need clipboards will facilitate write-the-room activities, CVC puzzles will help build great spellers, and bear manipulatives will make counting and pattern practice too much fun!

My Students

Many of my students are coming to kindergarten with no prior school experience. Some are learning English, and all are five and six-year-olds living in a high-poverty neighborhood of our city. Our school is one of seven "priority schools" within the district, designated so by the former superintendent for having chronically failing test scores, low family involvement, and 100% of students qualifying for free or reduced lunch.

Since being named a priority school, we have promoted restorative practices, community engagement, and social-emotional learning to help the students reach their full potential.

I'm so excited for the year to unfold and continue to look for ways to keep it magical for my students!

My Project

Kindergarteners are eager learners, but those little five- and six-year-olds need lots of creative lessons to keep them engaged in learning throughout the day. That's why I need your help.

The kiddos love getting up and moving during lessons.

That's why I need clipboards for the classroom! When each kid has their own portable writing surface, we can take learning anywhere! We will use our clipboards while we are making observations in the kinder garden, while we are doing walk the room activities, and anytime the kids need to relocate to complete their work.

The other materials will also help keep these babes excited about school. Poster markers keep our anchor charts fun to look at and CVC word puzzles allow students to build early reading and writing skills during independent workshop or small group time. The ten frame stamps will allow students to organize their numeric thinking without having to draw the frames themselves (Kindergarteners aren't the greatest at dividing a rectangle into 10 equal boxes!!). Bear manipulatives will be perfect for creating patterns, plus solving addition and subtraction problems.
