My Students

I teach three-year-old little loves in a half-day Charter school. My students are all ESL and/or disadvantaged. They come from homes that don't necessarily teach responsibility, they don't typically have much organization in their lives, and they aren't given many opportunities to questions things and experiments.

My classroom will promote innovation, provide safety and organization, and encourage responsibility and self-sufficiency in a way that their homes may not.

My students will be able to rely on their classroom as a place of joy and creativity with the materials provided.

My Project

I teach three and four-year-olds in a low-income area. These children come with very little fine motor skills, some without finger strength to hold crayons for coloring. These items will enable my students to practice their fine motor skills, strengthen their hands and fingers, and start their journey to writing. Using tongs to transfer items uses the same muscles needed for holding a pencil. The variety of tongs, squeeze bottles, and scissors give​ students the opportunity to strengthen different muscles through all kinds of activities. Hole punches will teach students how to use their arm muscles in conjunction with their fingers, while stencils help build hand to eye coordination. By the end of our first semester, my students will be well on their way to building a solid foundation for writing and it will be because of these items.
