My Students

My students are an amazing group of fun, hard working special need preschoolers who are in a public school setting between the ages 3-5!

I do my best to create and support a welcoming classroom where students come in ready to start their day with excitement and anticipation of what they will get to see, touch/feel, and hear which together compounds their learning.

They are supported in their ability in learning how to communicate, socialize and play cooperatively with others.

My Project

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." Benjamin Franklin

Young children learn by doing!

My project request, "Preschool Hands are Tools of Learning" is my way of requesting and advocating that my students need a sand/water table and the materials that would support creating a sensory table (either filled with sand or water). This will allow me to offer a variety of textures and thematic figures that will help my students relax, imagine, and interact. The kids will be able to play with materials such as the kinetic sand that I have requested.

This project will bring together preschoolers who range in a great deal of ability and need, but who all love to feel and explore and be able to interact with materials on a sensory level.
