My Students

Since I work with 4-5 year olds, I try to make school a fun and exciting experience. Most kids come from low-income homes. We do have a food-program which sends non-perishable foods home every Friday to those in need. They come to school eager to learn and play everyday. We are located near a military base, so we do have many military students. Our small town has seen a drastic population burst since I graduated in 1998. I love my students and I love to teach Pre K!!

My Project

My Pre K class would LOVE to play with the foam stepping stones. My students will be able to build and reposition the foam pieces on the floor then walk across them which will improve creativity, balance, and also gross-motor skills all while playing!! And as we know, playing equals learning.

Since Oklahoma is known for its crazy and unpredictable weather, outside-recess has been a rarity lately.

The foam stepping stones will be a great inside recess activity for us to use.

I can see my class using the foam pieces for math and literacy Interactive learning centers as well.
