My Students

I teach beautiful little Pre-K minds in a tiny 2A Title-1 elementary school in Northeastern Oklahoma. 80% of our student population is on free and reduced lunches. Many of my students live in single-parent homes or are being raised by other family members.

The best way for early childhood age students to learn is through hands-on experiences and active engagement!

My students are extremely curious and have a love for learning that empowers me to give them all the opportunities they deserve in and out of the classroom environment.

At this age, they are excited to learn new and exciting things. When you enter my classroom you will see students learning and exploring new ideas every day.

My Project

We have a light table in our Pre-K class and the kids LOVE it. However; we don't have the proper manipulatives needed to make our light table exploration area a strong math and science based learning center.

Ready, Set, Light, Part 2 is going to help my students be more engaged while learning Pre-K math skills and standards, by giving them various manipulatives to explore with.

In addition, the kids get to use the technology of the light table in various ways!

At ages 4 and 5, these kids need fine motor as well as hand-eye coordination activities. These manipulatives will help foster those skills and make learning fun for students with a variety of learning styles.
