My Students

I am a special education preschool teacher in a small rural district. My students are amazing! They are curious, imaginative 3, 4, and 5 year-olds who are learning to navigate the world around them. They need the opportunity to play and socialize with each other in a safe and welcoming space.

My students come to school to work on needed skills in a language-rich environment in order to help their development flourish!

They need to play, move, discover, and socialize!

My Project

Three to five year old children are extremely curious! They are learning all about the world around them while building their development in various ways. We work on so many skills in my classroom, but fine motor is one of the most important!

My students need more materials and tools to help them build fine motor skills.

These skills will translate to their writing and life skills as they get older. I am requesting items like pompoms, bingo chips, stickers, and tweezers to build fine motor skills in new and exciting ways!
