My Students

I work with Pre-K children that are imaginative and curious about the world around them. They desire to have fun and learn about what is around them. They may be small, but they love to play and learn at the same time. They have tons of energy and are excited by new experiences.

I seek to give them an imaginative and creative education.

I think learning can and should be fun. I am seeking the materials to create this atmosphere. I seek to fund projects that will help have a fun educational experience. I want to give my kids hands-on experiences with materials that allow their own creativity and imagination to grow.

My Project

For most kids, there is nothing better than playdough. It just the right amount of mess and creativity mixed together. Playdough can also be a great way to learn.

With the mats and tools, you would be purchasing the student and learn letter, number, and how to cut well.

Most kids that may not engage in other items in our classroom or even form learn will play with the playdough making it a great resource for learning. Students will play and not even know that they are learning great skills that will help them in their future. Help us provide a great playdough experience to all our students.
