My Students

My class consists of special needs, NCPK, and typically developed children in an inclusive classroom setting. My students range from three to five years old and participate in North Carolina's Pre-Kindergarten program that seeks to prepare them for when they enter kindergarten.

Our students work on skills both academic including pre-reading skills to physical skills such as hopping on one foot.

All of these varied skills help my students thrive when they move on to kindergarten. The technology in the class would help the students to enhance their technology skills.

My Project

In our classroom we love to learn through hands on activities. We can do this by using sensory activities. Sand and water are a great way that students can do this because it allows the children to experiment in different ways. They can learn how water moves and the different type of things that will sink and float. With sand they can see what they can build and dig up and find.

Our students love to explore by using their hands and when they do this they are learning to explore the world around us.

The students will love to have a new sand and water table. This will help to store the sand and water. The sand toys, water funnels, sensory tubs, and mystery capsules will allow students to explore many different ways science works. The shelf will storage all our new science activities.
