My Students

My wonderful students are 3, 4, and 5 years old. We are located in a small town outside of Charlotte, NC. All of my 22 students are children of school district employees.

My students are bright, energetic, and they love to learn!

They love hands-on activities that get them moving. Like most preschoolers, they enjoy music and creating different things.

All of my students come from wonderful families that are very supportive of our classroom. Our parents enjoy watching their children's growth as much as we do!

My Project

We are requesting various materials for centers and small groups to allow our students to have an environment rich of literacy. My classroom doesn't receive much funding and many materials are outdated, so I am working on providing fun learning materials.

My students learn best when learning is hands-on.

The materials I have selected are very hands-on and fun. The alphabots are letters that can be manipulated various ways and put back together. The magnetic puzzle will go into my puzzles center for my students to mach lowercase to uppercase letters.

I think my students will really love the locks! The alphabet keys allow them to match up upper and lowercase letters. The number keys require the students to count the dots and find the correct number to open the lock. The letter building set will help my students as we are learning letters. It will allow them to see the letters as stick and curves, which will help them learn to write the letters.
