My Students

My preschool students walk into our classroom every day full of energy. They can't wait to share their stories, thoughts, and feelings. They look around to see what has changed or has been added to our classroom. They look forward to all their new experiences.

My goal is to provide my students with the love of learning.

My goal is to do this by providing them with a safe, caring, happy, and fun classroom. They enjoy experiencing new things with their friends. I want be able to prepare them for a successful future.

My Project

My students are a young, energetic, full of life group. They love learning, but often need support to help them stay focused. They work hard all day. The sensory giant sight and sound tubes, tilt and turn sensory windows, gel bead sensory shapes, squish and squeeze sensory beads, and the additional materials I’m asking for will support my students of varying needs on a daily basis.

The items I’m requesting will support my students with sensory issues, ADHD, and all other students.

These items will help my students be successful as they engage in learning activities. Other materials will provide them with a sensory break, so they can refocus when it is time to work. These materials will not only support my students this year, but also support all my students of the future.
