My Students

I have 16 energetic 3-5 year old students who love to learn. My students are very quick learners who love to come to school. They are very curious and ask many questions throughout the day. They are great participators who love learning from their teachers and outside visitors. My students learn best by completing hands-on activities. The students in my classroom care about one another and continually practice the act of kindness. Any donations towards my classroom will be greatly appreciated by both the student and their families.

My Project

We would like to enhance our students' knowledge using hands-on experiences with science and sensory materials. The students will be encouraged to imagine and build with some of these materials, use hands-on lessons with some, and improve their fine motor skills. They will be able to problem solve on their own and work with their friends. The STEM materials will bring a wealth of knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math. We also need some where to store all of the materials we receive, so we are asking for a new shelf and bins to go along with all our new materials.The light table and the materials go hands by hands to improve the children fine motor skills, and help them work with friends as a team. The STEM materials will help them build structure.
