I am the teacher for the Cleveland Elementary School Head Start program, and I need your help maintaining the program's tradition of excellence. This year I have two vital goals. My first goal is to develop a group of highly socially competent pre-schoolers. A child's ability to manage their emotions and behaviors is a key prerequisite for school readiness and academic success; poor social skills can be a predictor of academic difficulty. My second goal is to cultivate academically advanced preschoolers who have well-developed early literacy skills. As Head Start students from low-income families, many people think my students are incapable of achieving academic excellence. I will reach my goal purchasing various new teaching tools to encourage learning. The Head Start Program is based on the premise that all children share basic needs. Children of low-income families can benefit from a comprehensive developmental program to meet those needs. The Head Start program is the most successful, longest-running, national school readiness program in the United States. It provides comprehensive education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families. Children develop their educational foundation, confidence, and study habits during their elementary years. Whether or not, their 'habit' is successful depends on building a solid reading and math foundation. Just like a building, an education foundation is only as solid as the foundation of understandings, basic skills, and study skills. Counting, sorting and classifying are important steps in developing early math skills. I would like to purchase two Magnetic Vocabulary Classification Centers for our classroom. Students develop vocabulary and build classification they sort fun, familiar images in the hands-on center! The center comes with 144 color-coded picture magnets and 24 category headings. The children will place the magnets under each heading to sort objects by season, classify animals, group everyday items like food and clothes-and more! The center will help teach students sorting & classifying, word-object association, and vocabulary development. Your donation will fund two learning tools for the classroom. Please help us purchase this worthy tool. You are the key!
