My Students

Our students are amazing three and four year olds eager to learn and show kindness to their friends. 100% of our students receive free and reduced-priced lunch and they are part of a community that prioritizes inclusion and providing every child what they need to maximize their learning. They are excited to build relationships with their friends, learn new vocabulary and social skills, and have fantastic first school experiences.

Our students bring their smiles, their hugs, and their best to school every single day.

I am grateful for you helping give them our best.

My Project

Our students work hard to increase their alphabet knowledge. They love to find letters in their environment and engage in purposeful play with their peers to build their early literacy skills. Letter building sets will promote a lifelong love of learning as they engage with letters in exciting ways! Manipulating the curved and straight lines to construct letters supports early childhood students in meaningful engagement with letters.

These materials will help my students learn alphabet knowledge through hands on experiences.

Specifically, these letter building sets will accelerate the learning of students who need tactile practice with letters and set all students up for success!
