My Students

I work with the youngest learners in an urban preschool setting. My students are a diverse group of young learners ages 3-5. Most come from high poverty homes. 78% of the students at my school qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.

I have students with special needs including communication impairments, students with autism, other health impairments, and students with motor concerns.

It is just a magical experience working with these students each day, and watching them grow. These students come to school eager to learn and brighten my day.

My Project

It would be a joy to have tools to use with our play-doh sets. My students love to play with play-doh, but unfortunately, we don't have anything to create shapes and objects with them.

The Alex Art Wooden Dough Tools Set would help out our kiddos because it would help to increase their fine motor skills.

It is important to teach young minds fine motor skills. Play-doh can do just that. Instead of putting a pencil in their hand or scissors. We can make it fun by cutting play-doh or strengthening fine motor by using the tools given in the set.
