PreK Sloths Need Your Help to Combat Morning Hunger

Help me give my students full bellies with breakfast bars and oatmeal so their 4 year old brains will be ready to learn and not have hunger on their precious minds!

My Students

I am a brand new preschool teacher and have 16 incredible student explorers. My students will spend this school year ready to explore through play and guidance.

The children are 4 years old and need hands-on experiences in order to understand their world.

All of my babies come from low-income homes and may have more challenges than most other 4 years olds. No matter what their home lives may be, I vow to provide the best Pre-K experience that I can. I want to strive to make my room safe, engaging, and fun.

My Project

Have you ever been unable to concentrate because you forgot to eat breakfast in the morning? This is a common everyday problem I refuse to let my PreK Sloths have when they come to school each day to learn! Many times the breakfast that they do eat is minimal and not able to sustain them the full 4 hours until lunch. This is where I need your help!

With your kindness, I can help create a full breakfast table to make sure that all my students brains are worried about literacy and math, and not their rumbling bellies!

This project will provide my students with oatmeal, cereal, and breakfast bars. No longer will I worry if I alone can provide the extra food they so desperately need as growing children! Thank you so much for reading!
