Learning Through Hands-on Activities

Help me give my students the ability to create sand castles and find out if things can float or sink in the water. Let their imagination run wild.

My Students

My Pre-K students are very diverse. Some of my students are typically developing and some of them need some extra help in order to be successful in the classroom. The students love the classroom and they come in daily ready to learn and play.

Each day the students arrive in the classroom, excited and ready to see what the day entails.

They enjoy seeing their peers as well as their teachers. We work hard to make our classroom a family. We strive to work together as a team and to help each other out when someone is down and the students do a good job of helping a friend feel better.

My Pre-K students are eager to learn new things. They have a great imagination and are so creative with their art. They use our toys, manipulatives, and art supplies daily to expand their world of knowledge and show what they are capable of doing because in our classroom anything is possible.

My Project

If the students have a separate sand table and water table in the classroom it will give them more variety. The students can choose what activity they want to play. Letting the students choose gives them the independence and confidence to be successful.

By having access to both a sand table and a water table, the students will build creative thinking skills in preparation for Kindergarten.

The sand table will help the students understand measurements, things that are heavy or light, building, and creativity. The water table will help students learn about floating objects, items that may sink, and discussions on what they think will happen.
