My Students

My students consist of inner city children that come from low-income families, and some are even homeless. As a teacher in an urban district, I work with four and five-year-old students ranging in levels of development. I have several students with special needs (IEPs) that are currently mainstreamed into my general education classroom. One student in particular currently has a personal aide to help support her in her daily school-related tasks.

My student population consists of inner-city children mainly coming from low-income​ families.

We are a dual-language school where students learn English and Spanish. We are proud to be a national school of character!

My Project

Preschool years are essential for learning basics. From developing good social skills to recognizing numbers and letters, these are the years students learn these important skills to move on to the elementary years.

The materials I'm requesting will be a tremendous help in working with my students in smaller groups.

I like to individualize learning as much as possible because all children learn at a different pace. The math magnets will be wonderful to provide my students with a visual for learning to count and add numbers. The draw erase option is also a great means of working on writing and fine motor skills.

The picture magnets will be a great asset to helping my students learn alliteration. The visual that these pictures provide will assist my students in learning beginning sounds. We are truly excited to add these materials to our classroom!
