My Students

My preschool students are classified with Individualized Education Programs (IEP). They love hands-on activities and learning through play. These kiddos are loving and full of energy. These students need early, meaningful experiences to help kick-start their educational foundation. The foundation of this classroom is based on the individual needs of each of my students. These students have significant needs in the areas of communication and language, social skills, and academics. Through structured routines and repetition, my students experience success and will make a difference in the world!

My Project

These materials are basic, but a necessity in my classroom. We are dangerously low on art supplies, along with manipulatives for our math and science centers!

We need various translucent materials like letters, numbers, and counters for our light table, sequins, tissue paper, and pom poms for art projects that promote creativity and free choice, and sorting/patterning trays, dough rollers, and fine motor jars for our math center!

These are just a few of the items in this project that my students could benefit from greatly. We are also in need of a few cot sheets to keep in the classroom, as some students may forget a sheet for rest time.

These materials along with intentionally planned experiences will help my students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) learn and develop fine motor skills, language/communication, basic math, and cognitive skills, along with foundational literacy skills. Please consider helping my sweet angels get some shiny new materials to play and learn with!
