My Students

My kindergarten students attend a Title I elementary school in North Carolina. Most of them are bilingual, speaking English only at school. For many of them, their time in Kindergarten is their first time in an educational environment. Many parents/families work 2 or 3 jobs to provide the basic necessities at home. They want the best education for their children and help them as much as they can.

My students are hard-working, curious kids.

They enjoy all hands-on activities and have a variety of interests.

My Project

I am requesting 1 digital camera with accessory bundle, 2 packs of batteries, and 1 battery charger. With the camera and accessories, my students can take pictures of their projects and hard work throughout the year to share with their families at home. They can also take pictures to accompany their writing and research. I like to give them a memory book at the end of the year and with the camera, we can take pictures on field trips, playing on the playground, and working hard in class for them to include in their memory books. They can also take pictures of their friends to add to their memory book. The batteries and battery charger will be used with some of our electronic games already in our class.
