My Students

Pre-K students love to explore and are full of curiosity. These qualities combined with their creativity make hands-on learning an essential part of a Pre-K classroom. These young learners love to try new things and take on new challenges.

My young learners get so much out of hands-on experiences.

They become engaged in their learning and develop the ability to problem solve in a fun and interactive way.

Pre-K students learn to communicate with others, share materials and how to persevere through hands-on learning experiences.

My Project

All of these materials will allow my students to actively participate in their learning.

My students will enjoy painting with many different tools create and exploring textures and designs.

The kid foam rollers, round sponge set and paint scrapers will be great for creating works of art our students can be proud of. They will develop fine motor skills using the wooden play dough and clay tool set, and will develop a sense of ownership and responsibility by being able to access and return books independently using the single sided book display. Their love of stories and independence will continue to grow as they use the boombox CD player in our listening center to enjoy books independently. The clear replacement tub for sand and water will allow us to convert an easel we already have in our classroom into a water table/sensory bin. Combine this with the learning resources jumbo tweezers and liquid droppers and it will provide students with endless exploration and learning opportunities.

The learning resources jumbo magnify glasses are the perfect size for young learners and will be a great addition to our discovery center

These items will provide my students with hours of fun and memories that will last a lifetime.
