My Students

I have twenty-two active and curious four and five year old students. These students are English Language Learners in a Title 1 school where more than ninety-five percent of students receive free or reduced-price lunch.

My Pre-k students are happy and excited to be in school.

Even though my students have challenges, I focus on each child's potential. I want to help my students develop and grow as much as possible during the time they are in my class. It is important for me to get them the resources they need to be the best learners they can be. I know that with a little support, my students will thrive.

My Project

Students love to work at the light table, but there are more benefits than just the sheer joy and enjoyment that the students get from observing the lighted manipulatives. Many students are coming to pre-k without the necessary fine motor skills needed to hold crayons and pencils. When students manipulate small items such as the ones from the light table manipulative center, students strengthen the small muscles in their fingers and hands allowing them to succeed at writing. The light table can also be used to teach about sorting, patterning and counting. The math mats we are requesting will help students visualize these math skills while they are playing at the light table.

The light table accessories will keep learning fun and interesting for my young students.

I expect my students to learn their letters and numbers. However, I also want them to have the opportunity to use the crystal building blocks and light table pegs for fun and imaginative play. When my students play, they learn more than just the concepts being taught. They develop language and social skills which are so important for success in school and in life.
