My Students

My students are bright preschoolers and kindergartners with special needs. They are three- to five-year-olds with various disabilities including autism, cerebral palsy, other health impairment, and speech/language delays.

My students are from low-income families, and almost all are English language learners.

Some have just arrived in the United States from Mexico with parents who do not speak English. Despite the many challenges they face, they come ready each day to learn and play with the most positive attitudes.

It has been a true blessing to watch my students learn and grow. Their determination and eagerness to learn are what fuels me. These young scholars amaze me every single day with their big hearts! A day in our classroom consists of enthusiasm, energy, and excitement. Every accomplishment, big or small, is celebrated!

My Project

My students are quite the creative bunch! All my students have speech or language deficits, but they love to express themselves through art. As an early childhood educator, I will always try my best to provide plenty of opportunities and resources to enrich my students’ experience in school. The materials I am requesting will help my students create unique and beautiful masterpieces in the classroom, as well as play materials to help them learn social-emotional skills. These materials will be used during small group activities and our centers as a choices during free play.

Each day, I incorporate "The 7 Habits of Happy Kids" into my teaching.

My students learn about valuing each other's differences, listening to each other's ideas, and acting responsibly. Through art, my students will work together, learning about tolerance and acceptance of each other. The art materials in this project include a sensory collage kit, foam paint bottles, photo nameplates, emotions stamp set, and photo cards for visuals as they draw together. These materials will surely make my preschoolers happy and engaged as they craft their own art projects! They will have so much fun while encouraging language and fine motor development.

In preschool, we learn through active play. The rainblow blocks will make play time a more colorful experience as students build structures of various sizes. They will learn shapes, colors, and to share with their peers. The giant sand timer will be an effective visual for us to signal clean up and transitioning time.

Thank you for bringing this project to life for these amazing kids!
