My Students

Kindergarten students in this classroom are friendly, curious, adventurous, and playful! We love singing, learning, and exploring our way through the school year. Our kids excitedly explore their world around them with a natural curiosity. Our students love hands on learning that leads them to form questions and seek answers about everything they are learning.

This giving group of students are so deserving of a gift that will brighten and enrich their classroom environment!

Thanks for taking the time to read about our request!

My Project

Our goal is to create a learning center that encourages exploration and wonder. These supplies will help support the needs of our students. To keep our students writing and working, our students need to have sharp pencils! This pencil sharpener will be used daily in class and will allow for students to continue exploring in their science class. Students will be making observations, collecting data, and comparing results from their experiments. The ink and paper will be used to create activities that will further engage and motivate our young learners!

We hope our projects will engage and harness our students inner curiosity.
