Supporting Kindergartners Academically at Home

My Students

My students have done such an amazing job adjusting to distance learning. We are actively engaging in various online platforms. My students and I have "Check In" meetings on Fridays on Zoom to share how everyone is feeling and talk about the week's classwork. In addition, I am recording lessons at home for them to view and continue to learn new material. I am so grateful for their participation, dedication, and the families' willingness to try new things. Truly grateful for my students and their parents for their continued support.

My Project

Please help me give my students learning materials for home and distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. My student needs a a variety of materials to make learning from home exciting and interactive. Some of the materials include whiteboards and dry erase markers for phonics instruction, glue and watercolor paint for art instruction, and chalk to practice writing their high frequency words.

I will create learning kits for all students.

These kits will contain hands-on learning materials that make learning exciting! These materials will be mailed directly to my student's home. Thank you in advance for your support.
