My students need to be exposed to positive things in the world around them. The two resources that I wish for will shine that light right into our classroom! Will you help me shine that light?

My Students

I teach a wonderful group of preschoolers! Some of my students have special needs and some of my students are general education students. Every one of my students is unique and able to learn!

My class is made up of a few students who are lucky enough to have two caring parents to raise them.

Others are not so lucky. Unfortunately, some of my little preschoolers have parents who are separated, deceased, or incarcerated. Some students spend their early mornings in daycare before arriving at school, only to return there after a day of learning in VPK.

Nonetheless, one thing is for sure: All of my students deserve the best in learning! And, I am going to do my best to provide that!

My Project

Scholastics My Big World Preschool Educational News Booklets will shine a light into the world of my VPK blended handicap students. By helping, you will directly provide students the ability to look at and learn from captivating real-life pictures and information in their own magazine! They will be able to keep their booklets, share with their families, and communicate their new-gained knowledge. With 8 issues each school year, the learning will be boundless!

These publications will not only enrich my students’ knowledge, they will excite and engage these young learners with meaningful and interesting information about our world!

Will you please help me shine a light?
