My Students

My students are amazing, upbeat and bright and are excited to learn! The Foundational Life Skills (FLS) program consists of students from Kindergarten through 5th grade who have various special needs including non-verbal, medically fragile and wheelchair bound. My students love attending school and are thrilled to learn every day!

My school is part of a Title I public elementary school and is located in an ethnically diverse, lower income neighborhood.

My school district serves a variety of community members including those who serve in military.

In collaboration with our exceptional parents, administration, teachers, physical therapist, nurses and support staff, great learning progress is being made daily. With your support, and generosity, my students will be able to have the necessary tools they needed for a successful in social skills and academic skills with this alphabet puppet set.

My Project

We are excited to learn! My amazing students always want to have new and creative activities in order to gain academic and social skills.

My student love to learn through creative and innovative projects!

They would LOVE the opportunity to have these puppets!

The cuddly soft alphabet puppets feature whimsical characters all my students will love! From the adorable alligator for A to a zany zebra for Z! Each big puppet has an uppercase and lowercase letter sewn on the front, so children learn to associate each character with a letter. The 26 machine-washable plush puppets have working mouths and arms, and come with an activity guide.

I could only imagine the happiness on my student’s faces to be able to create shows and gain social skills with these puppets. I know with these puppets my students will be even more excited to come to school to learn!
