My Students

I am so inspired by my special education preschool students! I get to create the students' first school experience.

I get to experience a lot of "firsts!" The first time a student says a new word like "turtle" or the first time a student joins in our music time and claps to the beat, the first time a student can complete a puzzle or sing twinkle twinkle little star or the first time the are able to ride the tricycle!

My Project

Our class is studying building with different items, blocks, magnets, bricks, and animals. We are also in the middle of studying buildings!

Our little learners are fascinated with magnet builders and we are always amazed at the imaginative ways they build with them.

There is actually a set of block buildings that also work on number knowledge.

Part of our buildings study is learning about tools, I love the little building tool kit that allows the students to build a dinosaur! Our students love animals which is why I included animal builders to our study or building, building and buildings!
