My Students

My students are happy 5 year olds who are active and eager little learners. They enjoy coming to school everyday ready to learn something new. A large amount of my students have never been to preschool making kindergarten their first exposure to education. It is my goal to instill the love of learning in a safe environment that ignites their developing brains. I am so excited and thankful to see all the learning that will transpire this year. "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world," as stated by Nelson Mandela, and choosing where you want to sit is the key to academic success!

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting will promote literacy hands-on. Students will be able to sort a variety of objects based on their beginning sound. These Teaching Tubs will allow students to explore, sort, and build vocabulary skills.

The Magnetic Boards which also has a magnetic pen will allow my students to practice writing the letters of the alphabet without using paper and pencils.

These Magnetic Boards make writing fun and I am positive my students will be eager to practice writing daily.

Learning literacy while using these items as a teaching tool will engage all students in learning!
