My Students

Imagine walking into a new environment full of learning opportunities, colors, and limitless imagination. Well, this is what our students walk into on an everyday basis. They are eager to learn and soak in all the information like big sponges ready to immerse themselves. What seems like so much at first is just a little bit for our big learners.

A day without learning is like a day without breathing.

Breathing is necessary every day and learning happens everywhere, from school to the home.

My Project

Recently, we got a wonderful new student who needs total assistance with most things. We want to make him become a little less dependent on us. With the easy grips, our student will be able to fully participate by being able to hold a marker in his hand. Without the grip, we have to use total assistance. Also, the tablet is a wonderful cause and effect toy for this student and another peer. We want to try to engage all students and make learning fun. Finally, we want all of our students to learn to drink from a cup and have fun. The dinosaur cups will make this a great experience for everyone and make drinking water accessible.

The preschool years are very important in any kid's development and we want to do everything we can to make it the best.

With these supplies, it will give my students some lifelong skills and most importantly help them learn while becoming independent.
