My Students

A typical day in my classroom includes very busy five and six year old children. Some of my students come from low-income homes. We are a small Title I school where many of our families qualify for free or reduced lunch prices.

My students are very active and love to have hands-on activities during learning.

The faculty and staff at our school work year round to ensure the success of all of our students. It truly takes a village and our school works closely together to help every one of the students in every way possible.

My Project

These materials will not only help students to enjoy learning but they will help to build their fine motor skills. Many children come into kindergarten with a lack of fine motor skills which leads to them struggling with their writing and everyday activities such as buttoning their pants and tying their shoes.

These activities will help to stop that feeling of frustration.

The Tweezer Tongs, Feed the Monkey and Find the Letter activities will help to build the muscles in my students fingers and hands. The Squeeze and Scoop and Gumball Grab will work on academic goals as well as strengthening my students hand grip.

The playdough, playdough tools and mats will help students to have a whole hand workout by rolling and squeezing the playdough while making art. Having fun activities to help build and strengthen the muscles in their hands will guarantee their success with holding a pencil, writing and dressing themselves. I love watching my students enjoy their learning and feel pride in their accomplishments!
