My Students

My students are incredible! They are very active and determined kindergartners. They love to create with their hands and engage in sensory. I find that when they are creating or using their hands and bodies to move they learn so much more through the experience and the sensory.

My students are looking to create and experience through sensory and activities that engage their minds and bodies.

These tools will help with just that as my students come from all backgrounds and neighborhoods. We have a collective mix of students. These materials will help create an individualized learning experience for each child that engages their senses and prompts learning through play.

My Project

These items will help optimize my students' comfort levels upon our return to school. I can't wait to create a new home away from home and a place where they can safely place their hearts as we all begin a new journey of learning and play.

These items are intended to provide a safe and comfortable learning environment as well as easy access and availability for each student.

We've all been crushing this distance learning but soon we will return to school. What better way than to turn our little classroom into our new home.

Please help me give my kiddos the gift of comfort and home as we embark on a new journey of adjustment and relationship building.
