My students need a activity display center to safely display our artwork and projects in the classroom. They need puppets and flannel board sets to explore at circle time.

My Students

As a teacher of students in low income/single-parent family homes, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

The students in my room like to move; they love to read and love lots of positive attention.

Many are students with a range of disabilities, emotional disturbance, and specific learning disability. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may deprive them of life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

My students need a safe way to display what they are learning in the classroom. They need an Activity Display Center. They need puppets and flannel board sets to explore at circle time. This will also help them retell familiar stories and reinforce what they are learning throughout the day. These activities will be used during circle time as well as in the learning centers throughout the day as we read and retell stories while learning together. They will be able to use these books and puppets during our whole group and small group time, learning to manipulate the puppets and orient the books correctly while we work on our literacy skills.

Your generous donation to our project will improve our Pre-K classroom by building a stronger reader.

This will change our students' lives for the better. They will love school and feel success at an early age --- having fun while learning!
