My Students

My students are bright preschoolers and kindergartners with special needs. They are three to five years old with different disabilities including Autism, speech or language impairment, health impairment, Cerebral Palsy, and visually impairment.

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 work 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

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. In my classroom, I implement weekly themes to help my students learn new vocabulary and expose them to different topics and materials. We are a hands-on learning type of class. Our upcoming themes includes spring, bugs and insects, and things that grow!

The materials in this project will help my students learn all about bugs and insects!

My students love to explore outside; they get so excited when they see live insects during play. This project includes books, manipulative toys, and discovery sets to teach my students to label insect names, sort creatures, explore life cycles, and so much more. The insect marbles with authentic insects inside will allow us to learn about real insects up close. They will have so much fun while learning science!

I hope to spark an interest in my young students and that they continue to love and learn about insects. Perhaps I will have a few future entomologists in my classroom!

Thank you for your support in bringing this project to life for us!
