My Students

Our campus houses two PreK classrooms of 4 and 5 year olds who love to learn! Every day is a learning adventure as we explore the world around us.

In our PreK classroom we foster a sense of creativity, problem solving, and exploration through hands on learning and cooperative engagement!

We are met with excitement and wonder every day and our students crave new learning experiences.

Our students are learning to navigate their new school environment, build relationships with peers, and are building the foundation of becoming lifelong learners!

My Project

Hands on sensory play is a huge part of our Pre-K classroom. Exploring through sensory play is rewarding, engaging, and cooperative! My students have expressed a desire for new items in our sensory center and I hope this project will help me provide that for them!

With your help, I can introduce new sensory bins every few weeks to keep my students excited about learning.

We use the sensory center to explore literacy, math, and science concepts in a fun and engaging way, through hands on play! Our Pre-K students are learning so much through daily sensory center rotation exploration!
