My Students

I teach dual language kindergarten grade in a low socioeconomic school district. My students live in an area that was drastically touched by Hurricane Harvey. Many of my students lost their valuables, clothing and what few school supplies they had due to flooding. Despite what my students have gone through at home, they have still been able to come to school and achieve the grades that are needed to meet their grade level expectations. My students come to school ready to learn and have taught me to keep moving even when times get tough.

My Project

My students need writing journals to explore writing and illustrating as early learners and to develop a love for writing. These journals will help us see writing as a progression of skills and will help meet our individual needs for writing.

My students need a place to keep their books.

The students get to choose a book to read but they have to keep it in a table basket. The books are used for independent reading. Right now we keep the books in plastic Ziplock bags. The bags break easily and become expensive to replace. If we had these new bags, the students would have a safe place to keep their books. The books would be in one bag that would not break and the students could even take the books home in the new bags! All of the plastic bags could go in the garbage!

Your donation would make it so much easier for my students to keep track of their books. The students would be able to bring their books to different places in the new, reliable bags. Thank you in advance for helping our classroom!
