My Students

My students like to explore and enjoy playing in all the areas of the classroom. Each of my students are unique and very creative in their own little way as they observe each other’s play on how they use what’s around them. They also would benefit a new water table and sand table. In the water area they like splashing, pouring, making bubbles and bathing baby dolls. As they grab the sponges and wash all the babies, dry them up and put their clothes back on. For the sand table they like pouring the sand into the tubes onto the cup, explore the texture of sand, and like to dig dinosaurs, letters and put animals.

My Project

My students would like to take the advantage of having new sand table to extend their learning as they interact with peers and explore the texture of the sand. They will enjoy to dig animals, trucks, car, letters, seashells and feathers by using shovels, cups and scoopers. My students would appreciate to have a water table as they will enjoy bathing babies and washing water toys. They will be able to discover how the water goes down to the other end of the tubes and how to un dig items. By having a new sand and water table my students will improve their developmental skills.
