My Students

This year I have the opportunity to work with 21 of the most excited, eager, and driven to learn kindergarten students in our state! Even though every student in my class is considered low income and from poverty, they amaze me with their desire to learn each day.

The smiling faces that enter my room each day do not reflect the struggles that many of their families face on a daily basis.

These students' parents do the best they can to meet their children's daily needs. Often times, the parents simply cannot afford extra items such as school supplies.

My Project

This year I was chosen to teach a wonderful group of kindergarten students. In working with them each day, I have learned that many have not had the opportunity to work on their much needed fine motor skills. Many of my students struggle with using scissors, using clothes pins, and holding their pencils correctly. This has affected several of my students, and in response, many of them shy away from trying because they already feel failure. I do not want any child to feel that way, especially my students. I am asking for a set of dressing boards that will help my students with fine motor skills that will help them be able to take care of themselves by helping them learn to tie their shoes as well as buckle, button, and zip. I am also asking for a set of fine motor skill games and a set of Theraputty that will help my students strengthen their grip so that using pencils and scissors will be easier for them. These simple materials will "trick" my students into working on those skills that they desperately need by giving them a fun experience where they will not feel discouraged about their current inability.
