My Students

The students in my classroom are excited to learn. They learn through play and experiences. Since this is their first time in a school setting I want to be able to present them with many opportunities to do a multitude of activities

Our school is located in a rural country environment with no sidewalks leading away from the school.

The only way to leave the school is by bus or car. So by providing a variety of activities and experiences in the classroom, my students get the most out of their first year.

My Project

My students have many materials related to letters, numbers, alphabets that they can see and read - materials that are more paper or flash cards. My 4K students like the variety of materials but they get thrilled with hands on toys that they can manipulate.

Working with their hands and stimulating their minds with new materials will create life long learners who want to put forth effort into learning.

They will be able to use their creativity to act out interests and to come up with solutions to problems that might be presented to them.

Some of my students don't have many opportunities to explore STEM items at home. I want to give them experiences in our classroom to make them excited to keep coming to school and wanting to learn more.
