My Students

Your first years in school should be full of exploring and learning about the world around you. For preschoolers, their day is full of hands on activities that show them how things work, learning cause and effect, and learning how to be an independent individual.

My preschool class is made up of three to five year olds and has a high ratio of special education students to general education students.

Our classroom is considered an inclusive classroom, which means I have students with specials needs (ranging from mild to severe), students with a deficit in only certain areas, and model students (students who scored high on verbal and social testing). We learn from each other every day!

I want my students to have every opportunity in the world to learn and grow! And we need learning materials to do that!

My Project

Learning how to solve problems, think through situations, and work cooperatively are essential to preschoolers. These STEM activities will help foster a love for science, engineering, and math in a fun way.

STEM activities help us to understand the world around us and how to think through everyday situations.

I want my students to have every opportunity to start those critical thinking skills at an early age.

The stand up magnetic board, create a path magnetic center, and engineer a coaster activity kit will help my students think of multiple ways of doing things. They will be able to create paths and see what works and what doesn’t work. They will learn to work with each other also. The water toys will allow the kids to learn more about characteristics of water in a hands on way.
