My Students

I am so excited to share with you about my students. My students are always happy, eager, fun-loving and excited to be at school. For many of them, this is their first full-day experience with school, learning and making friends. They enjoy hands-on, interactive learning. They have limitless imaginations, and it is a wonderful experience to see them grow and learn from the wonderful classroom materials that we have.

We create a strong sense of family and community in our room and build friendships to last a lifetime.

Our school is in one of the largest urban school districts in our state.

They come shy and not knowing a lot about the social and academic aspects of life. Within the year, many learn to read, develop a love of books, numbers, and, most importantly, they have fun doing it. My students are learning to break out of their shells and develop friendships, learn manners, share, and how to navigate situations. This would not be possible if we didn't have the appropriate equipment in the classroom. Please help me fill my room with new items for the kids to enjoy, explore, and learn from!

My Project

My classroom is in need of more of a variety of fine motor materials. Adding manipulatives to the classroom will allow the children to increase their fine motor skills.

Fine motor skills are the foundation to which other skills are built upon, skills that allow the children the ability to hold a pencil the correct way so that they can write.

When developing these fine motor skills, the children are developing self-help skills which can improve a child's ability to tie their shoes, zip their jackets, and hold a fork or spoon. Fine motor skills are one of the first skills that should be developed so other skills can be built upon. With this project receiving funding, the children will be offered more materials within the classroom, which will help them develop this skill.
