My students come from a variety of backgrounds. For some, this is their first year in a formal school setting. Some speak limited English, or no English at all. As a kindergarten teacher, I must be creative and flexible. I know that simply following the curriculum will not be sufficient to teach my students what they need to learn. I know that I cannot follow a script all day. My little learners must be exposed to a variety of texts, use materials that are level-appropriate, and utilize technology that has meaningful educational purposes. By funding my project, I will be able to purchase a variety of materials that my students will use for years to come. I am seeking funds for the items below:
2 iPads- educational apps like Teach Your Monster to Read, ABCya, Starfall, Animal Math and ABCmouse are just a few of the apps that are fun, engaging and will reinforce skills in literacy and math.
Lakeshore Learning materials- a variety of materials for math, science and language arts will be purchased. Follow the link for a description of some of the materials.

My wonderful husband and I just welcomed our first child into this world, and I've been fortunate enough to spend several months at home with her. Being a mom has made me even more committed to teaching. I have so many hopes and dreams for our daughter and I can now truly relate to the wonderful parents that I've worked with all these years. I am eager to return to my classroom and make this year a memorable one.
As a show of appreciation, you will receive a personalized thank you note from one of the kindergartners. Any donation is truly appreciated!
