My Students

Our school is Title I, with 100% of our children receiving free lunch. Children come to school excited and eager to learn. A lot of times the school environment is the only stability that the children have in life. We have a diverse group of students, coming from all different backgrounds.

It is so important to provide these children with experiences that they wouldn't have at home.

Thanks for helping to give these children these experiences. We are always looking for new ways to make learning fun!

My Project

Research tells us that children learn best through play. We want preschoolers to be engaged in play that is intentional and meaningful. These toys are designed to help students practice and recognize both letters and numbers while strengthening their fine motor skills. These games are specifically designed to peak children’s interests so that they will begin to learn while they play. What’s a better way to learn your letters than playing with robots? Students can begin to learn proper pencil grip simply by strengthening the muscles in their hands. Children want to play, so it is our responsibility to give them games and toys that they can enjoy while learning.
