New School Year, New Grade Level

Help me give my students the supplies they need to start the school year off right!

My Students

I work in an urban classroom where I will have a class full of Kindergarten students for my second year of teaching. My students come from low income homes and will benefit greatly from this project. My students are very special in many ways and I love to see how much of a difference I can make in each and every one of their lives. My students need all the help they can get inside and outside of the classroom.

My hope for this project is to be able to provide my Kindergarten students with all the essentials they need to help them build a foundation that they will continue to strengthen as they grow older and build their knowledge and love of learning.

My Project

If my project gets fully funded, I will be able to start the school year off right with my Kindergarten class. This will be the first year that most of them will be coming to school for the whole day. I would like to make this transition as simple as I can for some of them.

I hope to also be able to give my students all the supplies they need so that their families do not have to supply anything for the beginning of the school year.

For example the pencils boxes to keep their pencils and crayons in and the folders to be able to take home any important papers and homework. My hope is that my Kindergarten class is comfortable and ready to start the new school year. My students will be able to do their reading and mathematics with ease if this project is fully funded. For example by using the Play Doh for practicing shapes and colors and the paint markers for practicing counting and learning new numbers.

Please consider donating so my students can learn the foundations of their mathematics skills to start their kindergarten experience off right!
