Learning Through Our Hands

My pre-school students need a variety of hands-on games and activities, including farm life storytelling felt set, lower and uppercase letter builders, modeling sand and an ice cream playset.

I teach an academic based curriculum to 26 eager preschoolers. The subjects include character building, life skills, Math, Health and Social Studies all within a public school.

My students need hands on activities that will create interest and promote their independent thinking skills. We have limited funds due to our public school needs and poor economy. These students learn quickly and well through hands on activities.

With these hands on activities, students will be able to work independently on practical life skills and basic concept building skills needed to form a solid foundation for future learning.

Your support will ensure years of continued academic and social growth for our future leaders of tomorrow. With your help we can make a difference in a small economically challenged community that faces consolidation in a very rural county on the east coast.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
