My Students

The students in our classrooms have a wide variety of academic and social skills. Our students may all be working on different skills or learning through a variety of ways, but they are all part of the same community and work best when they are all together! Collaboration and group work around fun, creative activities allow all of our students to grow and learn together, regardless of their abilities.

Our school is a place where all kids are honored for the unique abilities and talents they bring.

My Project

TK students need to learn so many school readiness skills and it is our job to teach those skills in fun, hands-on ways! Our new ocean rug will help students learn about personal space and practice the alphabet in an engaging way. Our new fine motor tools will allow students to build hand strength through pinching, scooping, and gripping these toys. All of these fun and engaging activities have students feeding animals, scooping ice cream, and creating pictures while they are getting their hands ready for drawing, coloring, and writing in the future. When activities are engaging, students are more invested in these valuable practice activities.
