My Students

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

I serve students with special needs including speech and language impairments, students with autism, and students with motor concerns.

I also serve students that are learning English for the first time.

My Project

Cause and effect toys and fidget toys are especially helpful for children with autism as they help to develop intentionality and a sense of control over their environment.

With these toys, my students will begin to increase visual and fine motor skills, and have the opportunity for hand-eye coordination, sensory exploration, and repetitive sequences.

Help us explore with Playskool Play Favorites Busy Poppin' Pals, Pete the Cat Jack-in-the-Box, Moo Toys 'Doggy Spinner' Push and Spin Dog, and other fun pop up and fidget toys.

I have seen how these toys can positively affect my students demeanor and interest in play and these additional options will help us grow even more!
