North Stars Sensory Adventure!

My students need a sensory table to develop cooperative play, imagination, teamwork, fine motor skills, and so much more. The other items on our wish list will promote creative thinking, artistic expression, and self confidence.

My Students

A new school year brings so many opportunities to engage early learners and plant the seeds for a life-long love of learning. In my Young Preschool classroom, I strive to provide exciting and enriching learning opportunities daily for children at all developmental levels.

Play is the most important learning tool for the developing minds of our two and three-year-old class.

You can help us to build the ideal environment for play-based learning in our classroom with your generous donation. Thank you!

My Project

A sensory table in our Young Preschool classroom would provide unlimited opportunities for developmentally appropriate learning. Developmental areas that are stimulated in a sensory table include touch, smell, sight. The sand, animals and water beads will promote exploring, problem solving, early science skills, cooperative learning, and so much more! A butterfly habitat would give my young preschoolers the opportunity to learn about life cycles, observe natural phenomena, predict what might happen at each life stage, and provide an understanding of the importance of taking care of their environment.

These donations will help our students develop a lifelong love of learning.Your wonderful donations will bring excitement and joy to our young preschool classroom.

Your help will bring smiles to so many young faces as they learn to accomplish new skills.
