My Students

My students are some of the sweetest, hardest working children you will ever meet. Despite the many obstacles life has thrown their way, they show up excited and eager to learn each day. They're ready to give their best, and I meet them head on with challenges to help them grow and develop into exceptional students, friends, and leaders!

My students need materials that meet their wide range of developmental abilities.

Our school is a Title I school. All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. An entire wing of our school is dedicated to pre-k to fifth-grade children with various special needs. I have the joy of teaching our Pre-k to 2nd-grade students with intellectual disabilities. These present themselves in many ways, from ADHD, to communication issues, sensory impairments and more. I am so appreciative of the many generous DonorsChoose.org supporters who help me bring exciting new materials into my classroom for my children!

My Project

We all remember our cavity books and activities when we were kids. Many of us played school and tried to teach our friends or siblings the things we learned each day. Most of us introduced our babies to our favorite childhood book before the could hold it or turn. I want to develop that early love of learning in my students too!

My students love bright colors, fun textures and activities that keep their minds and hands busy!

The cloth activity books will cater to the many different ability levels in my classroom. The board books will be fun for story time, and my students will want to read them again and again. The touch and feel flashcards will engage my beginning learners, while the other flash cards will allow my more advanced students to practice matching and recognition skills. These durable materials will be used year after year, and benefit the many different children that will come through my door. I am so excited to see how far the items in this project will take them!
