Every day I look into the eyes of 16 enthusiastic learners and see a world of potential. I teach a morning Kindergarten class of students who are part of an all day program. My students bring me joy and it is a pleasure for me to see them learn and grow. While these kiddos may be young, they can learn at a very fast pace. Help me give them more visual resources to aid their learning.
My students are enthusiastic, hands-on learners, who are in need of some more materials to help support their learning.
Their minds are constantly working and they need to be encouraged and supported to continue to progress. My students have a desire to learn about the world around them and I want to help them learn and become better prepared for the world that we live in.
The use of write and erase pocket protectors is almost a daily activity in my classroom. My students need many opportunities to write letters and words as they are learning to read and write. The write and erase pocket protectors, the jumbo magnetic letters, and the letter tiles will help my students get the practice that they need.
It is amazing what 5 year olds can do when they are given resources and guidance!
In our classroom we have small group intervention time. During this time, it is helpful for my little learners to have meaningful independent activities that they can do when they are not working with me or an aide. Having magna tiles, write and erase pocket protectors, and letter tiles would provide more resources that students could use during small group time. Also, we currently do not have enough student iPads to give a small group student iPads to use during small group time. If we had another iPad, students could use the literacy and math programs that we have available to use.
Having an Apple TV will greatly help when there is a substitute teacher in my class. If I must be out of the classroom due to pandemic related causes, I can leave an iPad for the substitute to use and connect to our Apple TV and then show prerecorded lessons of me teaching. This will allow my students to still receive quality instruction instead of simply doing worksheets.
By donating to our project, you will help little learners have access to resources that will help them on their journey to become readers and writers. Despite COVID-19 and the challenges that it has brought to our classroom, these resources will help students establish a solid foundation of reading and writing skills.
