My Students

I am blessed to work with a wonderful group of diverse young children who come to me with various backgrounds and experiences. I teach in a public school where a large percentage of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch and are faced with other concerns that put them at risk for learning challenges. Despite these challenges, we work hard daily to reach our full potential.

In my classroom we are proud to love, laugh, and learn everyday.

As a preschool teacher, I work with our school's youngest learners (ages 3-5). It is important to me that I provide children and families a positive experience as they start school. Together we set goals and strive to meet them through our exciting learning adventures.

My Project

Puzzles are a wonderful way to provide hands-on learning opportunities, which is how preschoolers learn best! My students love to play with puzzles, but we are in need of new puzzles as many of our current puzzles are missing pieces or the pictures have faded. I am asking for updated puzzles so that my students can gain valuable skills while working with them in the classroom.

Puzzles provide opportunities to practice many skills such as math, fine motor skills, and team work!

Working with puzzles lays the foundation for geometry and other math skills. While playing with puzzles, children experiment with space and shapes, learning how things fit together. They also use their fine motor skills to manipulate puzzle pieces. This is a great way to develop the hand-eye coordination that they will need to write and accomplish other daily activities. Putting puzzles together is fun and provides a challenge for many students. Children often work together to complete these puzzles. This provides an opportunity to use positive social emotional skills such as sharing, taking turns, and working together towards a common goal!

Your donation will help provide children with new puzzles with pictures that highlight various academic skills, diversity, families, and much more! Puzzles are a classic children's toy, but they are still one of the best materials we can provide for young children!
