My Students

My class consists of special needs and typically developing children in an inclusive classroom setting. My students range from three to five years old and participate in North Carolina's PreKindergarten program that seeks to prepare them for when they enter kindergarten.

Our students work on both academic skills, including pre-reading skills, and physical skills such as hopping on one foot.

All of these varied skills help my students thrive when they move on to kindergarten. These items will allow students to learn about being healthy.

My Project

Every year our students need some new supplies and we all know that sometimes it is difficult to get some. So we would like to get some new supplies for the middle of the school year. First, a new shelf to organize the new art supplies that we would like to get. Then we could use some new no-spill paint cups. Next, paint dabbers, magnets, craft trays, paint spray bottles, and paint dabbers.

This is a great way that our students can start the middle of the year off and they will start it off right.

All of these wonderful supplies will allow the students to be able to create their own magic with their art.
