My Students

My school is one that educates the young that come from a diverse community, low income families, and families that have children with a special need. We are a school that not only supports the students but the families too. My Pre-K students come from a very diverse community. They are young, creative, and full of questions. They enjoy activities that are hands-on, get them moving and engage them. They come in the classroom full of smiles and ready to share their experiences with the rest of the class.

My Project

My students love sharing their thoughts with their peers and myself. The Puppets and Puppet Theater will allow for my students to take their love of sharing story-telling to another level.

These puppets will allow the students to express themselves in a new and exciting way!

My students will also use these materials to explore their increasing vocabulary! It will allow them to work with their peers, and learn to use their words to share their space and ideas with one another. I cannot wait to see what my students will act out given these tools!

Your generous donation to our project will improve our Pre-K classroom by helping to build our classroom community’s
