PreK Backpack Kits

Help me give my students a pack of resources to support their remote learning.

My Students

The students in my class come from varying backgrounds, often with limited experiences, resources, and English language. They are always eager and excited to learn through hands-on experiences.

The students in my class have not typically attended any other school setting, and this is where they will meet many milestones given the proper tools and resources.

By exposing the children to a more literacy-rich environment and kinesthetic learning experiences, I am setting them up for success as they continue on through their academic career.

My Project

PreK students, 4 and 5-year old children, have quickly transitioned to working remotely from their home, and with their resilience and perseverance they have made tremendous accomplishments during this COVID-19 pandemic.

I want to provide resources that will allow them to continue to learn at home, and foster development during our Distant Learning platform.

With these backpack kits, children can continue to explore topics we have learned and further their creativity.

Drawing, coloring, painting, and other art activities support young learners' fine motor development. This will play a critical role in their writing skills later.
