My Students

Our school district is formed by three small towns; some of my young students spend an hour on the bus each school day. Our families are very committed to early childhood education, and value the educational, social, and emotional experiences their child has at school.

A glimpse into my preschool classroom would show smiling, happy children, who are having fun while learning!

Students love learning through music, movement, art, and stories, all while increasing their social skills with friends in class. Our classroom is a welcoming environment for all who enter.

My Project

Preschoolers love building with magnatiles, and I would love to see them take it to the next level with a set of Jumbo Magnetic Building Tiles. These would give a great opportunity for students to work together and be creative!

Preschoolers love creative play, and these Jumbo Magnetic Building Tiles would really amplify what students are able to create.

Play is a child's work, and working together with these building tiles would help students with spatial awareness, hand-eye coordination, and math and engineering skills.

The best part of these blocks, is the fun that students would have through learning. They wouldn't know they were learning at all.
