Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

Welcome! I work with students from Fresno, California who are in Preschool, Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten. Their ages range from 3 to 5 years old with different cognitive abilities. In our class there are 12 very unique students with Autism. Everyday our team works with our students on, routines, math, communication, social skills and their individual education plans.

When are students are not in class working hard to meet their IEP goals they join the general education students for inclusion.

Our students enjoy learning the alphabet, counting, dinosaurs and anything sensory related activities. I absolutely love working with our students and they deserve the best that we have to offer.

My Project

The the resources included in this project our students will have the opportunity to work alongside one another with play dough. With brand new play dough and play dough shapes, cutters, and letters our students will be able to explore different textures, shape and letters.

A new play dough sensory area will provide our students will open-ended creative opportunities and develop their fine motor skills.

While children are rolling, poking and squishing dough they are working towards strengthening the muscles in their hands. They are also using the cutters to form letters and numbers while also working together and building relationships.
