A Super Fine Class Needs Fine Motor Skills

Help me give my students fun and engaging tools to help them develop their fine motor skills.

My Students

My students face unique challenges both inside and outside of the classroom every day. In the face of these challenges, my students walk into our classroom each day knowing they are valued and there is value in education.

My students are excited each day to experience engaging, meaningful learning that can help create future opportunities for success.

All of my students receive breakfast and lunch at no cost to their families. Many are living in a world where they face hardships early on in life. Despite these hardships, my students have endless potential. As their teacher I strive to focus on their growth in order to inspire my students to use their potential and become lifelong learners.

My Project

As a teacher new to teaching kindergarten this year, it was clear my students need to develop their fine motor skills. Fine motor skills are critical to the development of handwriting, using scissors, and many life skills such as using a spoon or fork, tying their shoes, and unlocking doors.

With the help of your donation, the materials I am requesting will help my students develop their fine motor skills and allow them to do so in a fun and engaging way.

These materials will not only help to develop my students fine motor skills, but they will also help with many other academic skills. These skills include sorting, creating patterns, counting, and letter recognition and formation. I believe learning should be fun and I know my students will enjoy having these tools in our classroom.
