Learning Through Play

My students need reading tools and learning manipulatives.

My Students

I want my students to learn without knowing they are really learning. They are in school long hours and need many things to keep them stimulated.

My students are in a three and four year old preschool classroom.

This is their first school experience and I want to keep them motivated to learn. They have curious minds and busy little hands. It is important to provide them with a variety of resources for learning. They are in school long hours and are always looking for something new to play with in school.

My Project

My students are in a full day program. Many of them are in school for up to 10 hours a day. It is important to keep them learning in a fun. The Tag readers I have chosen will help them to read with fun character books. The other manipulatives chosen are for them to be used to improve their fine motor skills. Learning through play is the best way to learn.

We have a few months left to the school year and my students have come a long way.

It is important to have enough manipulatives and resources for my students. I want to provide my students with a wide variety of learning manipulatives to keep them motivated.
