My Students

On March 13th, I got to hug my kindergartners and tell them to enjoy their Spring break. At that time, we knew that the break would be extended but we expected to be back in our classrooms eventually. This has changed and our Wisconsin governor has closed down schools for the remainder of the year. My Kindergarten students are currently learning from home and I am providing them with enrichment activities through a Facebook group. Navigating this new reality has been challenging to say the least. However, we are doing the best we can and adapting well.

My Project

My students are adapting to their new reality of having their Kindergarten year shortened and being at home all the time. My students are very resilient and it was a wonderful year in my classroom. Now we are up to the challenge of getting them ready for first grade. This project will allow me to send them a kindergarten workbook, coloring books that build confidence and self love, a Kindergarten Diploma, and enough materials for me to be able to keep sending them mail regularly. There will also be stamped postcards I will mail out so they can send them back to me.

I miss my students daily hugs, smiles, laughs and conversations, this project will allow me to let them know I am still here for them and that I care for them.

They are such a grateful bunch of children and enjoy and appreciate the tiniest things. I know they would be over the moon to receive letters from me. The work book and coloring book will be a fun way for them to continue learning and build those valuable self love skills we all need.
