Mrs. C. from Frankfort IL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Helping Little Hands

My students need the sorting muffin pans, Tweezerstms, pom poms, and bug sorting kits to help develop their hand muscles and strength. This will improve their overall fine motor skiils in the classroom.

My Students

My students are wonderful little children who are in various early childhood classrooms. They all have special needs of some sort.

They all love coming to school, and their parents tell me that they will look for the school bus every day, even on days that there isn’t school.

The students are very proud of their accomplishments, and we all take pride in each other’s accomplishments.

Your efforts to assist them will yield very significant results for each of these children later in life!

My Project

All of my students love to play with manipulative toys. Therapy time is a fun time to learn, practice, and train hand skills and minds.

These toys, such as Gator Grabber and Sort a Bug, will allow my students to develop hand strength, eye-hand coordination, and overall motor control.

These are skills that are needed in order to learn how to write. The best part about theses toys is that they allow my students to develop their motor skills while having fun. Along the way, it isn’t absolutely vital to have a very large assortment of therapy resources to keep the tasks new, interesting, and with sufficient variety to avoid boredom.
