My Students

My preschool students need to continue satiating their thirst for knowledge. Due to the corona virus pandemic, our school closed mid March, forcing us into a new way of learning....distance learning. My students need basic supplies so they can learn at home. In order to facilitate distance learning for my young scholars, I need your help!

I need your assistance to make sure that each one of my students has what he/she needs to learn from home.

I teach in a school where many of my students qualify for free meal program. My students' families are hardworking, but a lot of them have lost their job due to COVID-19. My children are only 4 and 5 years old. They are hands on learners. I sent home some basic supplies at the beginning of the school closure, but they need more. And this is where you come in. Can you help me give my preschool children what they need to learn at home?

My Project

The pandemic caught us all by surprise, and distance learning for preschoolers is a challenge, especially when they do not have the basic supplies at home. We are all in this together, and we are trying to make the best of this unprecedented situation. The supplies I am requesting will allow me to bag up "learning bags" that I will deliver to their home. I want to make sure to that my students have the basic supplies necessary to learn at home while our school is closed.

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much" – Helen Keller.

I am requesting construction paper and drawing materials from pencils to markers. My project also includes materials to foster their creativity including play dough, pipe cleaners, paint, and model magic. The magnetic boards, magnetic letters/ numbers, and white board makers will help foster their Literacy and Math skills. These materials will make distance learning more engaging and educational for my preschoolers.
