My Students

My students come to school everyday ready to to learn and grow. They are eager to try and learn new things. I want my students to know I believe in them and they can succeed. As a teacher in a head start classroom, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences

My classroom has two sessions, an AM and PM one, with 15 children in each.

My students have speech and language delays as well as cognitive delays. They attend school four days a week and work on school readiness goals. This means that children are ready for school, families are ready to support their children's learning, and schools are ready for children. The majority of the children in my classroom come from low-income homes, and this is their first exposure

My Project

The materials I have requested from Lakeshore Learning will be used individually, and small group in the classroom through center time and daily learning. The children will have the opportunity to see how items can be stacked and built to create structures. The light table will be able to manipulate math activities with I want my students to expand their creativity and enhance their language skills. The Stacking crystals will allow the students to strengthen their fine motor skills as well.

By donating to this project, you will provide my students with the tools to develop curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking skills through Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

These skills will benefit them as they grow into productive students. Thank you for considering a donation to my light table project!
