My Students

The students who attend our school are students from diverse backgrounds. Many attend our school from outside of our immediate area specifically because of the location in a small mountain community. They come because we are a high performing school and we are a Certified Wildlife Habitat as designated by the National Wildlife Federation. We utilize our outdoor areas to enhance education.

The Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten students come from a variety of cultures and backgrounds and become a classroom family in our shared space.

The Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten children range in ages from 4 to 6 years old. They are curious and creative children who enjoy learning and playing and who thrive in a stimulating classroom environment that supports fostering their independence.

My Project

My students need opportunities to develop their fine motor skills by developing the muscles they will need for writing. Learning through play is a stress-free way for my students to develop their strength while having fun. The requested materials are both fun and functional.

Many of my students enter TK/K without the muscle strength needed to grasp a pencil and crayons firmly enough to draw and write.

Writing becomes frustrating for them and they are unable to draw the things they want to. With these materials, my students will develop a stronger grasp, which will help them learn to write and draw.
