My Students

My students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures, and love working together at school. They are eager to learn and love to interact with each other. Our school is a small school in a small community, so sometimes we can't offer all of the things our students need.

Our Kindergarten students need equipment to build their gross and fine motor skills!

In Kindergarten students work on a variety of skills, including physical and fine motor. We have a generous, committed parent community who helps us teach these skills, but we need some materials to make it happen.

My Project

Our kindergarten is so fortunate to have parents willing to help us help our kids develop their gross and fine motor skills. Physical development is so important at this young age, but it is hard to find the time and budget to make it happen at school. These toys and materials will help our kids to develop these important physical skills, and they'll have fun while they do it!

With this equipment, students will participate in a variety of activities, geared toward developing important fine and gross motor skills.

They'll also develop crucial team-building skills as they work together on these challenges! They'll use the HillTops, and Step-a-logs to develop balance, and the Spikeball game to develop focus and teamwork skills. Plastic cups and balloons will be used to develop fine motor skills, which are so essential as my students become young writers! We will use the tape to mark out on our indoor floor games to work on counting in a tangible way, using the beanbags and rings! Twister will help us learn right from left, and early reading skills! I can't wait to see my children have some fun while they build these lifelong skills. Thank you so much for supporting our cause!
