My Students

I have a wonderful group of Transitional Kindergarten students this year. They are caring, empathetic, creative, hilarious, and adventurous. I believe my group of students can have a tremendously positive impact on this world just by being the wonderful children that they are.

It's my goal to get students engaged in school so that no matter what circumstances they may face in life, they have a passion for asking questions, exploring, and learning.

My students come from a very low-income level. Located near a homeless shelter, our school is flush with transient students.

My Project

These materials will help my students develop fine motor skills by playing with sand, playdoh, small manipulatives, and the like. Students will also have the chance to be scientists and explore their world with magnifying glasses. Letter bingo, well, that's just fun!

As a new teacher, these materials are out of my realm of purchasing.

Any donations would be exceptionally helpful.

I also want to implement GLAD strategies in my teaching practice and these materials will help me to do that. Young students learn through action and self-driven exploration, and to provide them these materials would give them the access to do so.
