My Students

My preschool classroom is part of the Great Start Readiness Program. This is a state-funded grant program. I have 16 diverse students in my classroom each year. My students are all at-risk students, either due to low-income or other factors such as being English Language Learners or having Speech and Language delays. There are many different ethnicities within my student population as well. My goal is to get each and every one of my students ready for kindergarten each year.

My Project

Please help me give my students a new and fun building set that contains ramps and balls. This set contains different-sized rectangular ramp blocks as well as 3 different-sized wooden balls. This set will engage my students creativity and engineering. It will also allow them to explore movement and gravity. They will be able to race each other and learn about which types of ramps are faster and why. In addition, they will be able to use their social skills as they work with their peers to build amazing creations with these ramps. My students will be so excited to have this building set!
