My Students

My students are between 4 and 5 years old. They are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, activities. With school closures nationwide, it is hard for them to continue learning at home without their essential needs of basic school supplies. For many of my students, the supplies at school is all they had.

My Project

For this project I have selected some hands on materials for my students. Coming from a low income school, many of which do not have access to basic supplies like books, pencils, crayons and paper. With the materials I am asking for, I will create a care package for my students to help them continue to learn while at home. They are able to work on everything including fine motor skills that will help the along the way to becoming great writers. I would like them to document and write/ draw about the things that the are doing now. Years from know, they will be able to look back at this pandemic and remember the great activities they did with their families.
