My Students

My Pre-k students enjoy coming to school and learning new things everyday! They love spending time with their friends and having new educational experiences. Although they come from economically disadvantaged households, they come each day ready to learn and excited to start the day.

My Project

They will use the markers, crayons, and notebooks to continue practicing their letter and number writing. And they can use these to place their assigned work from the distance learning assignments. The ABC game is a fun addition to family game night while also being educational. This is an item that reaches the whole family!

The Play-Doh is a fun sensory experience where they can create shapes, letters and numbers.

The students loved using this in the classroom! These products I have selected will have a great impact on the students' learning at home.
