Kindergarten is a place where students actively use their imagination and develop a love of learning. World Academy is located in a low-income neighborhood, and are not able to provide their own basic school supplies (backpacks, paper, crayons,etc.). The school provides all of the necessary instructional materials, but due to budget constraints, funding for creative materials like construction paper, paints, markers, crayons, and scissors are minimal. Donating to this classroom will ensure that students are participating in a classroom that not only promotes appreciation of the arts, but encourages students to create their own masterpieces. This will be my first year teaching, so I will be starting from scratch. I would love to create an inviting classroom library that is full of books and comfortable pillows. I also am collecting puzzles and games that are related to literacy and mathematics.
Also: I would love to purchase a class set of dry erase boards and markers!
