My Students

My preschool students are Southern California kids currently at home under strict stay at home orders due to the pandemic. The children continue to learn at home with their parent's support and the support I give to them by engaging them in science, read-aloud, literacy and art activities. During the time the children have been distance learning, I've assigned activities for them to engage with their parents at home in planting seeds, bug hunts, tending to their garden and watching a Monarch Butterfly Life Cycle through videos I share with them.

Unfortunately, not all of my students have technological devices such as computers, tablets or printers.

I need your support in providing them with the technological resources they need to continue learning at home.

My Project

Dear Donors, my preschool students need a printer, paper and ink to support their continuity of learning. Three-quarters of my students don't have technological devices such as tablets, printers or computers at home for their parents to engage them with online lessons or worksheets during the stay at home orders due to the pandemic. My students need worksheet packets to continue writing letters, numbers, shapes, words and their name. Please help me close the educational gap by providing my students with the resources they need, I will make worksheet packets for all of my students moving up to kindergarten and distribute them. My students have learned so much this school year, they've made so much progress academically and therefore, must continue to be engaged at home with academic activities to help them retain what they've learned and to continue learning.
