My Students

I am the lucky teacher of 32 amazing students. I teach a diverse group of learners. They are each unique and together we have a wonderful group of young students! My group includes students with special needs, students from low income families, and students who are new to our country. We have students who are learning to speak English for the first time. We also have students who have Autism. It is our differences that make us unique. Our blended community makes us a special class and together, we are a masterpiece!

My Project

This will be the very first educational experience for many of my young learners. These incredible tools and learning supplies will provide my students with hands on opportunities to develop and grow their fine motor skills. Students in my class are just learning how to correctly form their letters, numbers, and shapes. They are brand new with writing and these materials will help them greatly. The materials will be used to strengthen my students' fine motor skills. The goal for my students is to have strong fine motor skills, so that they can properly form letters and numbers.

Students will have valuable learning opportunities while using these manipulatives and learning tools.

It is critical for young learners to strengthen and develop their fine motor skills. This will help them greatly, as they learn to write and to create. These learning tools will provide engaging and exciting learning experiences for all of my students. My students will gain valuable fine motor skills, that will help them for the rest of their lives.
