My Students

My developmental needs pre-k classroom serves students from ages 3 to 4 years old. My students are a group of diverse individuals that comes from different economic levels, cultural backgrounds, and academic needs. In our classroom, my students receive services from an Occupational Therapist, Speech/Language Therapists, and a Physical Therapist to help them with their needs so they can be successful throughout life. Daily, in my classroom, we strive to meet students' individualized goals and standards that are set by for 3K for all. In my classroom, we enjoy large/small groups, hands-on assignments, pictures cues, repetition, and structure.

My Project

Our students are a diverse group of children with specific needs. Our science center needs some help meeting those needs. Help us make science fun for our little ones with these donations. Our children love to explore, with items such as a microscope, they will be able to discover both big and small items. Help them learn about the world around them through examining tree items, or seeing the world in difference colors!. Our children are eager to learn and discover new things, with these donations and your help they will be able to do just that! Thank you so much!
