My Students

Do you remember filling buckets full of sand and creating that "perfect" masterpiece? My preschool students don't know what that feels like. We need your help getting a sand and water table for our classroom!

I teach a group of 4 and 5 year olds in an all day preschool classroom.

We are a very active and inquisitive group of students. Our school is a Title 1 (high poverty) school with 92% of our students on free and reduced lunches. We are located in Oklahoma and don't have access to sandy beaches.

My Project

Using their imaginations, a sand and water table and 1 box of sand will help my students build their large and small muscles by creating structures in the sand. Using funnels, building dams, and inquiring about what is going to sink or float will increase their dexterity. Students are engaged with figuring out new uses with familiar materials using both the sand and water. Manipulating the sand and water will help build the muscles needed for their pre-writing skills. Being able to control these muscles helps students control their fingers while learning to write.

Living in an urban area, my students don't have access to sandy beaches.

Providing a sand and water table will enable my students the opportunity to build structures in the sand along with learning how to manipulate water and inquire what items can sink or float.
