Fun Learning with Play Dough and Water!

Help me give my students fun ways to learn their shapes, numbers, and letters!

My Students

Our TK students are 4- and 5-year olds who live in the low-income, mid-city district of Los Angeles. Our students come to school every day and we have the highest attendance for a Title I/low-income school with a population of about 800 students. The transitional kindergarteners are a rambunctious, beautiful bunch of kids with so much life, love and learning to be had. They deserve everything the world has to offer and more! We are so proud of them, every step of the way!

My Project

These materials will help further the math and language arts lessons I teach to my transitional kindergarten students. The giant number magnets will provide a hands-on approach to learning their numbers and building higher numbers too! The letter magnets and fishing poles will provide a fun and engaging way to practice letter recognition and sounds. They will also allow the students to build words and enhance their reading skills! The hands-on play dough activities will help my students improve their fine motor skills as well as their number and shape recognition! All of these materials will not only bring the lessons I teach to life but will create a fun way to meeting their academic goals.
