Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

These kindergartners love to be at school. They love to learn, and they enjoy being an important part of their community. Nearly all the students that attend our school live in low-income households, but that doesn't stop them from contributing generously to their learning environment. They proudly cheer each other on, lift each other up, and push each other forward.

The students at this school come from a wide variety of different cultures and have vastly diverse identities.

They are curious about themselves, their classmates, and the cultural diversity within their community.

Every student in this group of kindergarteners is special and unique, they are kind and considerate, and they are well mannered and respectful. Our diversity is what makes us special. These students utilize their positive personal traits within that diversity. The extended their manners, kindness and consideration to those that look and behave differently than they do, and they constantly help to make the entire world a better place.

My Project

It is important for kindergarteners to develop hand eye coordination so that the child learns to coordinate the information received through the eyes to control, guide, and direct the hands in the accomplishment of a given task. This helps the child become skilled at tasks such as cutting, handwriting, and throwing and catching balls.

The swing and catch cups provide students with a fun and safe game of catch—that helps children build their hand eye coordination!

The game can be played independently. Students simply hold on to the plastic cup which has a ball attached to it by a long fabric cord. They just swing the ball into the air, then catch it with the cup—and build their hand eye coordination as they go!
