My Students

My preschool class is fun and exciting each and every day I have them. Even though you might have a day planned out, it never goes as planned. That is what makes it so fun. They are eager to please and do what you want.

We are a small school with pre-K through 12 in a small rural town.

Having my small class gives me the ability to watch each one and interact with them all in the ways they need.

One thing I strive to have is multiple stations that they can choose to go to during free time. We all know that we don't have the same interests so being able to have available different stations creates more of a chance to give each one something they enjoy doing.

Donors choose is a way we are able to provide in these different ways.

My Project

I have chosen the Magna-Tiles so that my students will be able to have more areas to go to during free play time.

They will learn how to be creative through building different structures.

They will learn to succeed and see their final project. They will also learn colors, shapes, and how magnets work to hold things together. They can do this by themselves or also work together learning how to talk and work together to create something.

Having more stations available for free time lets the children have a more variety to learn from. Magna -tiles will be another station to add to the others.
