My Students

I teach in a rural area where more than half of the children are below the poverty level and receive public assistance. Because of our high agricultural industry, many parents are migrant workers and move often to provide for their families. This fact alone puts many of our children at a disadvantage for learning. All students at our school receive free lunches due to the majority of the median incomes that our parents have. However, these odds do not stop our children from wanting to learn.

My classroom this year has eighteen children who are each unique and special to me.

My Project

The night before Kindergarten we all get jitters and are nervous for a new year. We are going to make new friends and learn lots of new things. We are going to learn but we also have to have fun while learning.

This project will help provide some supplies we need to get off to a great start in Kindergarten.

We need Laminating pouches and color paper to make copies for fun games and center resources. A crayon sharpener will help our crayons last longer this year. Glue sticks and Pencils are very important in a Kindergarten classroom we use so many of those each year. Birthdays are important in our classroom we need straws to make birthday balloons, stickers, bracelets, and birthday treat box toys.
