We are raising money for this project to give students greater access to technology to help develop the technical skills that are required in the world today.
We continue to build on our theme of being respectful, taking responsibility and looking out for other’s safety. Our goal is to provide a place for a student to sit if they need a friend; allowing someone to be able to be that friend. Holmes is looking to be a Buddy to others who may be in need. We would like to install two Buddy Benches at our school.
I am creating a flexible seating classroom to help my 4K students learn in a more comfortable environment!
Last year our school began using Reading Workshop to teach 4th graders how to read. It was so exciting to witness the increase in students' reading engagement and excitement! One important component of Reading Workshop is the interactive read aloud. I am looking to add books to my interactive read aloud library that are current, represent a diverse population, and teach strong themes - especially those revolving around kindness, empathy, and acceptance.
My students love technology and I love incorporating it into the classroom as much as I can. However, being in a low income school, resources are very limited. I would love to have tablets in the classroom to enhance the learning by my students. These tablets will be used for center time, Guided Reading, small group instruction and so much more. My students truly will benefit from having these inside the classroom.
We currently have no listening center for our class and have numerous CD and book titles. We want to use them again. The expensive one we bought has broken after a short time and now we are stuck without one. Best Buy called my idea a "Frankenstein" to build. I assured them it was possible because we had one. It was originally over $899 and now it's gone. We want to have a nice player for listening to our books. We also want to add a feature to show our books on the projector at the same time. We have done some homework and can purchase some new fun seasonal and content titles, the player, wireless headphones and hookups for around $500 if we use some parts we have now. Please consider donating to our classroom.
We need help getting back on our feet after Hurricane Irma. Our school had some damage that is in the process of being fixed. However, our community is based on tourism. Without tourists, many of our parents are unable to provide supplies to their children. Free lunch is over soon but the need will not be. Any little donation helps! Thank you!
Sigsbee Charter School is providing lunch and breakfast to support students and families in the days post Hurricane Irma. The goal is to provide FREE breakfast and lunch for every child in our 500 student school until November 1st.
We are blessed with a small group of students who care about what happened to our peers in Texas and want to help them get back to normal
My classroom is filled with lots of love and many diverse learners. Ledge Street is a Title 1, inner city school. This means that many of the students come from low income families. I would like to bring technology into the classroom. I do not have a updated laptop to use for our changing curriculum. With one, students can participate as a whole class and follow along with each lesson. They would love to interact and come up to show how they got their answers and teach others! With a world of information at their fingertips, it will surely be an opportunity for each them to succeed in school. With your help and generosity, I can ensure that each of my students reach the highest possible academic achievement they can despite their personal backgrounds.
We are in sserious need of pencils, pens, crayons, colored pencils, index cards etc.
We LOVE reaching out to the community to make it brighter. Our kindergarten class will visit a local senior citizen home and entertain the residents. We will take socks and other items to share with the elderly.
We would like to partner with The Master Kris Foundation, a non-profit organization, based out of Brookfield, CT. We have reached out to Master Kris Hyun from The Master Kris Foundation, and he has agreed to provide this education to our first graders, should we acquire the money to fund the program. Master Kris Hyun, from The Master Kris Foundation, strives to develop the full potential in any child that he instructs. He enables them to embrace the challenges of life more successfully. He does this while setting the highest standard of excellence during the program, which was created specifically for elementary age children. Partnering with The Master Kris Foundation will provide our first grade students with the many benefits to Taekwondo: respect, discipline, exercise, focus and breathing techniques to regulate stress and anxiety levels, increased memorization skills, improved self-confidence, self-regulation, self-control practices, and goal-setting strategies. Our students will be taught more than just basic techniques of self-defense and peaceful conflict resolution, They will learn the cornerstones of the Taekwondo philosophy: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and determination. A portion of Master Kris’ Taekwondo program is an academically-based curriculum that teaches children how to “Be a Buddy, Not a Bully”, through bully awareness and prevention, and promotes non-violence and a focus on defense from bullying behaviors. This program fits perfectly into Danbury’s district initiative and strategic plan of restorative practices, where we are providing members of our school community with skills to encourage positive social interactions and relationships that support learning and peaceful conflict resolution.
