My Students

I am a first year kindergarten teacher. I was just hired on Friday and class began on Monday. My students only deserve the best and financially I cannot go out and buy them everything I want to and that they need.

My students are little kindergarten angels from a very small town.

They attend a lovely little school that is well on the level of low income. They are precious and they need help. All of my students have a lot of potential and I want to give them all the luxuries of a fully stocked room.

My Project

My students need educational manipulative games to enhance their kindergarten experience. They need 3 puzzles, sorting cubes, 2 lacing activities, and Fiddlestix. The items that I requested will be used for center time. During the center time the students are not just playing they are learning while playing which makes learning an even more enjoyable experience. Everything I put on my list will help my students learn fine motor skills that are necessary for every day living. This is one of the most important skills that children learn.

This project is important to me because I believe that kindergarten is such a very important grade.

It is the foundation of how a child will respond to school. I want my classroom to be as well stocked as a teacher who has been teaching for many years. I cannot provide that by myself on my teaching salary. That is why I am begging kind people who are willing to donate to help my precious class. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE help us out. Thank you so much for your time.
