My Students

I have a group of thirteen amazing three-year-old PreK students. We are located in a small rural district in northeastern Oklahoma. The majority of the schools in our district are Title I. Our community has a very high Native American population, as it is the home for nine Tribal Nations. Many of my students are experiencing being in a school setting for the first time. We are preparing them and building a foundation for them to continue to become successful scholars.

My Project

We love our light table that we received last year from Donor's Choose. However, we are in need of some more manipulatives to use with it. We are asking for some pegs and pegboards to turn our light table into a giant light bright. We are also asking for some sensory beads and sensory balls to put in our light table bin. The final thing we are asking for is some rainbow pyramid stacking blocks.

We love our light table, and can't wait to get some new tools to use with it!

We especially love how it changes colors, or we can set the colors to match the mood of our classroom!
