My students are 4 year olds who come to school ready to start building the foundations of their learning. I have a morning and afternoon session which means I teach 40 students with different interests and abilities. They are eager to explore and learn in many different ways even though many of them don't speak English.
The students make every minute count and they are becoming life long learners on the road to reaching their dreams.
Their school day is only three hours so they need to get the most of every learning experience I can offer them.
My students need manipulatives and games to go with their light table. They already have the table but need things like magna-tiles, dominoes, and letters to help them learn math and literacy concepts. STEM learning is another area that this project will help.
By using the Build a path and Engineer a coaster activity kits, the students will continue to develop their higher order thinking skills.
To pull all this learning together, the Feed the Animals and puzzles will help develop their fine motor skills so they can write up all the learning that is going on in the classroom.
