Help Keep Me Engaged!

My students need more center activities to help keep them engaged in learning. The rocking chair is for my students who have a hard time calming down for rest time.

My Students

My school is a small but strong school nestled in Limestone County. Most of our students are from low-income households. Over half of our school is on free or reduced lunch. We may be a small school but we are a very unique and great school!

My students are my life, they brighten my day every time they walk through the school doors.

They are so full of life and love adventures. They love coming to school every day, learning, and playing with their friends. My preschool class is very unique! I teach an inclusion classroom which means that 50% of my children have special needs and 50% of my children are typically developing. All of my students learn differently and some have a more difficult time learning new concepts. By being able to provide new resources for my students, I will be able keep my students engaged and learning new concepts!

My Project

My students need more activities for them to do during center time! They need more fine motor activities and alphabet activities. They are getting bored with doing the same centers often. I want to be able to give them different choices to do during center time so that they stay engaged in learning!

With generous donors, you will be able to help my preschools with their academics and fine motor skills.

These items on my wish list will help my students both academically and with their fine motor skills. Using the Alphabet Snap-N-Learn Alpha- Gators, Snap N Learn Catapillars, Snap N Learn Rhyming Dogs, Snap N Learn Bugs, Design and Drill Brightworks, A to Z Alphabet Groceries, Puzzle ABC Cookie, and Fine Motor Hedgehog are all great activities is both great for learning language skills and and strengthening fine motor skills. The timer time tracker will help those students who need a visual timer for transitions to different centers. By being able to give my students different centers to do during center time, it will help keep them engaged in learning every day! The Glider Rocker Lullaby will be to help calm some of my kids who need help calming down for rest time.

Thank you so much helping my students!
