My Students

I am one of the preschool teachers at our school. I have a room full of 20 unique students. Most of the students come to school excited to learn. My classroom contains students who come to school with a variety of experiences. In order to help all of my students succeed, I want to provide them with learning experiences that get them excited about school.

I want to provide my students with materials to help spark their creativity and exploration skills.

I would like to get a ramp and balls exploration set and a magnetic create a path center.

My Project

At the age of 4 and 5, my students are excited about exploring the world around them. I want to provide my students with as many different hands on learning experiences as possible. Having a wood ball and ramp set will allow my students to explore creating their own paths for balls to travel. They will get to explore the concept of cause and effect. They will also get to learn more about gravity and the impact that can have on objects.

Children are born to be active learners, help me make this possible with having new engaging hands on materials for them to explore.

I know they are going to be excited to work together to create intricate mazes for the different balls to travel through. I look forward to seeing the teamwork this material will help spark.
