My Students

Our scholars are very talented and fun. They love to learn, play and work in groups. They are very eagerer to learn while exploring. They love to read, play with cars and put puzzles together. Their favorite time of the day is art and group time. But, due to a tight budget there is no funding to provide the many things we need. The students are unable to complete those task, being that we do not have the materials to complete them. A previous staff member left her position and took everything inside the class with her, leaving our class empty and incomplete!

My students are not able to get this opportunity outside of school because they are not given the opportunity due to poverty, low financial support and/or funds!

Our school is a K-8 school in an urban setting on the East Side of Milwaukee. My goal is to give them the best learning experience possible! My students struggle a lot during our social activities because their learning is very limited due to their limited supplies. With the right supplies they will be able to prepare properly for the next grade level.

My Project

These activities will be used during Learning Center and group centers throughout the day as we read and work together while learning together. They will be able to use these materials during our whole group and small group time, learning letters by using the bean bags, building social skills using the board games, building blocks will bring the building rug to life when they play together with the blocks. Your generous donation to our project will improve our Pre-K classroom by building a stronger learner and uplift the students socially. The costumes and props will teach them everyday life skills that they will need to succeed in class.
