My Students

My classroom is full of the most amazing children! They walk in with so much enthusiasm every day. Although the class is very diverse in ethnicity and social economic statuses, they see everyone as being an equal. They greet each other every morning with great big bear hugs.

We are one big happy family.

We celebrate each others achievements and encourage each other during difficult times. On any given day when you walk into our class, you will see high fives, way to goes, and you can do its. My students range from the age of 3-5.

My Project

My special needs preschool students spend a good portion of the day learning while they are on the floor. You may be thinking where else would you sing, dance, play games, have center time other than the floor? Valid point, but our problem is that we only have one carpet.

Unfortunately, at times we are all squeezed like sardines on the one rug that we have in our classroom.

The students need to have their own comfortable space where they can have room to move around while they learn and play, exercising their minds and bodies.

As a bonus, I was able to find the prefect rug for our class with many educational opportunities built right into it. With the vibrant pictures, the children can practice counting, colors, letters, sizes, and much more. The possibilities are endless with what they can do. I truly believe that that is a must for my classroom and appreciate your support.

Thank you!
