My Students

"I found an "a","a" alligator", a child exclaims while engaging with materials in the sensory table. Each day I get to see twenty tiny minds engage in learning in an excited and authentic way. I love teaching four year olds because of their enthusiasm for learning.

I am especially inspired by my current group of students because they are not only learning the alphabet for the first time, but English.

We are a Title I school which caters to a large population of ESL learners. I adore working with this population of students. They never cease to exceed my expectations and tackle learning a new language with determination.

My Project

Much to my surprise when I met my students this year I discovered that several of them had never practiced coloring and writing at their home. In fact several of them held a writing utensil for the first time in my classroom. This being said their fine motor skills need to be developed.

Young children acquire fine motor skills through play which requires the manipulation of small objects.

I have requested dolls and doll furniture for the dollhouse in our classroom. Manipulating the small furniture and dolls will benefit them with skills of cutting and writing by building their hand strength and dexterity. The best part is they will be having fun with their friends while they develop these important fine motor skills.
