My Students

A core belief at my school is that every child, no matter the circumstance, is a unique, individual genius. We can unlock that genius! My students are hard-working, kind, energetic scholars who are excited to come to school each morning. Our kindergarten classroom gets students excited about learning and gives them a positive first school experience.

My scholars attend a public charter school serving 2000 students in the inner city.

Our school is determined to provide equal parts academic rigor and character development so that our scholars can determine their own destinies. My students use each day to the fullest as we teach them that they need, "knowledge plus character to pave the road to college and beyond."

My Project

"Play is the beginning of knowledge."-George Dorsey. These materials will give my scholars a chance to make hands-on connections to abstract concepts that we are learning.

Students will have the opportunity to use the materials daily during literacy and math centers.

Many children learn best through play and these supplies give them this opportunity while keeping them actively engaged. Students will have choices to use the Stamp and Write Sight Word Stamps, Learn to Count Dough Mats, Branch Blocks, and Simple Word Locks to meet our daily objectives in math and literacy.

By donating to this project, you will not only help increase excitement during centers, you will ultimately help create independent life-long learners. Students will choose what activities to use during choice time keeping them engaged and in charge of their learning.
