First of All It's Sensory Science

Help me give my students materials they need to excel in the classroom and outside environment like the leave letters to use for letter recognition.

My Students

Hello to all. This is my sixth year working with children. I am currently in a NC Pre K classroom with children who are trying to beat the odds every day. I have been using activities that promote growth and social skills but what we lack is equipment and things that are hands-on to make the lesson more effective. I see how happy they get when we do new learning activities such as writing our names, practicing colors, or learning letter sounds. Most of these children come from middle class families struggling with poverty and being homeless as well.

This is their safe place throughout the day when they come to school they know that we want the best for them and want them to succeed in life as well.

My students are the best because they show compassion and drive from just singing there ABC'S. If I had four words to describe my classroom, I would say "persistent, determined, cheerful, enthusiastic". These children are so smart and want to learn something new every.day and with this opportunity from DonorsChoose.org, these items will be a great addition to have in the classroom.

My Project

These materials in the classroom will help promote a print rich environment. As any teacher would want these materials such as the sand will have the children in the classroom exploring through play and enjoying the textures of the sand. All the students in the class will now have the opportunity to explore at the sand table and enjoy this center in the class. I always hear them talk about the beach and what they refer that to is the "sand". I hope that I can make there wishes come true by providing them, with this fun filled center called the sand table!!
