My Students

The students in my Early Childhood Special Education classroom are eager to learn! We have a wide array of learners that are just growing by the minute! Our classroom contains 10 hard workers in the AM class and 15 just as hard working students in the PM class, all ranging from ages 3-5 years old with a variety of learning needs. We view ourselves as a classroom community and take care of one another. They are fun, energetic, happy little students begging for more opportunities to explore!

My Project

We are in desperate need of a makeover in our block and math center. Many of the toys and items have been overly loved that our supply of working toys is running low.

Block play gives the students the chance to be creative and unique with their imaginations.

With the Community Building Set and traffic signs, my students can pretend to build their own town or even a new town they would like to visit!

Our math center is overly loved as well. Some of our older math toys are outdated or missing pieces. The Math block set would be great for fine motor and learning their numbers along with the counting surprise party game and the learn the count peg board.
