I work with low income families. To see the look on their faces when you introduce them to something new is priceless. The joy they get from learning new things daily is a great feeling. Our families are unable to help with items that we need in class to do a great project and let the kids have fun. Our school is located in Knoxville, and most of our families and kids live around violence daily.
I would like to give them as many good experiences as I can while teaching them daily.
Receiving materials to help with this concept would help out tremendously.
My students need to work on their fine motor skills. They can use the materials to build, use their imagination and create awesome things. The feeding games will help them use the tweezers to feed the animals and practice fine motor skills. The other items will help them be creative as well as work on fine motor skills. I would like for them to use their imagination while working on this skill. The manipulatives we have don't really give them the opportunity to work on their fine motor skills. Hopefully with newer toys in our class they will get the chance.
