My Students

Our old sand table finally gave up on us and has broken into many pieces. It is a favorite activity for exploration, learning and playing. The 100 Kindergarten students are now trying to scrape the sand from our pavement to recreate their old sand table experience!

My students are from a low socio-economic and diverse ethnic background.

They attend our public school in California. Many of them are attending school for the first time. They are a delightful group of 5 year olds who enjoy play and making friends. Many of the children have never been to the beach, the zoo or the snow!

My Project

Young children are active learners. They learn by exploring, touching, building and experiencing their world in a hands on way. Being able to have a sand table gives them hands on experience with physics, excavation and archeology. We try to use the table to give them experiences that they aren't able to have at home. In addition, this table gives them a cooperative play experience and helps to develop their oral language and social skills.

I would love to provide my students with a table that can offer a beach experience, a play experience and a way to connect with other children!

They miss their sand table and often offer me their pennies so that we can buy a new table!
