My Students

My students are from a Title I school in the suburbs of Detroit. The Transitional Kindergarten program gives children from all cultures and various incomes an opportunity to learn and thrive within the district before going to kindergarten. My energetic TK students enter the classroom ready to learn, discover, and explore.

They love to read books, draw pictures, use tablets, build structures, and compare, sort, and pretend play throughout the day.

They light up as they proudly identify letters and discover sounds. They love to learn and use their imaginations.

My Project

My students love our current set of Magna Tiles. Whenever I put them out, they attract even the most shy students to create and interact with their classmates. I would love to add this Magna Tile Metropolis set to further enhance my students STEM skills and creativity.

The Magna Tiles would be used throughout the day to challenge my students to create complex designs, work together, and be creative.

These magnetic tiles encourage students to work with one another, thus allowing my students to work on their social skills as well. Having another set of tiles will also allow more students to be able to use them. Not only are the Magna Tiles a great way to practice many important skills for my TK students, but they are a lot of fun. Having fun makes learning memorable and helps build a love for learning.
