My Students

Step inside my classroom, and I can guarantee my students will put a smile on your face. They love to learn and are eager to discover more about the world around them at only 3 and 4 years old. We have various centers that we "work" in where we learn about the world around us: block area, house area, wood working area, manipulatives, library area, art area, and writing center.

Although my students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds, they share a love for learning.

They love learning about the world around them through play. Play is the work of the young child; it is how our youngest learners discover the world around them.

My Project

My students are looking for some fun new hands-on learning toys. It's time to replace our old outdated ones with some new ones that will spark their interest and love for learning. The best way for students to learn is through a hands-on approach, especially in preschool.

These items will allow my students to do just that.

These materials will help the students use their fine motor skills which is important when they enter elementary school. The students will also be able to learn how to count and to recognize letter sounds. These items will come in handy in my classroom. Thank you for supporting us and believing in the future of tomorrow.
