My Students

My 25 amazing kindergartners have an extreme amount of love for learning that I have never seen before! They love reading, writing, and doing math.

My school is located in the heart of a great neighborhood in Philadelphia.

We are a Title I public school that lacks the funding and the necessary resources, but we make do with what we do have.

My students have the desire to acquire knowledge and be engaged in the learning process. My goal is to support this intrinsic motivation with hands-on opportunities.

My Project

My students enjoy writing. We write every single day, and need more materials to help promote my students' writing skills! The chart paper, markers, and post its will allow me to model writing in front of the students. Modeling writing is the first step to students becoming writers.

Once my students become writers, they love to create books!

My students get so excited when they publish their work, but currently, I can only staple the books together. The binding machine and the binders will allow me to publish some of their books that they make, rather than with staples. My students will be so excited to make books similar to the books that they are reading!
