My Students

My kindergartners are excited about learning and love coming to school! They are anxious to explore the classroom and the new school environment. They learn best by using tactile learning and manipulating objects.

Some of my students need more support than others during their first year of elementary school; they haven't had any education at all or need emotional or social support as they learn to interact with their peers.

It's a wonderful experience to be my students' first impression of their school career!

My Project

The light table and a sand and water sensory table will make ELA and math centers more engaging for my students. They will love to sift through items like rice, beans, sand, corn, or pom poms in a sensory table while searching for sight words, numbers, or letters. The light table would be a new hit for my kinders as they explore with light play while learning letters, numbers, colors, shapes, and more!

While these special tables are used for our center time and learning, they can also be a tool for students with special needs.

The sensory input of these tables can be very relaxing for my kinders. They will make a great addition to our kindergarten classroom!
