My Students

I teach an AM and PM special education classroom. I love teaching all of the students.

My classroom is full of energetic, creative, hard working preschoolers.

Many of my students come from low-income homes. Therefore, they do not have access to educational materials outside of the classroom. We are focused on building our social-emotional skills, math skills, and literacy skills. The students get excited with hands-on learning games so we are asking for these materials to help reach our goal.

My Project

The materials I have requested will be sure to inspire my active and inquisitive learners. Preschool students love to learn with their hands. Fine motor activities like "feed-the-bunny game, scoop-a-bug sorting kit, and tweezers tongs color sorting kit" will help them grow and strengthen their fine motor skills.

Young children learn through play!

My students love Play-dough. Adding "learn shapes dough mats, feelings and emotions dough mats and learn the alphabet dough mats" into my classroom will help grow students fine motor and academic skills. I am looking forward to seeing how they grow and learn with the new materials.
