What will the funds be used for

The funding will help to provide materials for instruction and setting up the environment. I teach at Head Start, q federally funded program providing preschool for low income families. The classroom I have this year has no windows. It’s been proven that natural light is crucial for learning and impacts the social emotional wellness of kids and adults alike. I would love to get some plants in the classroom to provide some nature but also as a learning opportunity (plant life cycle, maintaining and taking responsibility for the plant, etc). I would also love to get a light table and sensory table for the classroom. Although, I have 18 kids for a year, these things will last for years to come. Thank you.
