My Students

I teach in an early childhood Preschool classroom.

In our room we are a melting pot, including seven different languages and many cultures.

Over 90% of my students are ELA (English Language Acquisition) students with several speaking no English at all.

Despite these obstacles, these students are eager to learn and do their best. My students walk into the classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store. I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.

My Project

Students will be able to use these materials daily in our sensory center. They will have hands on experience learning about letters, numbers, and the natural world.

They can use their imaginations to create things only they can think of.

We love mess play, but love easy clean-up, and smocks are great for this. No mess on the students clothing and no fuss from parents.

Colored sand gives children the opportunity to us more vivid imagination. They can also mix colors to make their own unique creations.

The class loves to scoop, pour, and stack, and what kid doesn't like ice cream? This item will allow us to have deeper conversations with students, and encourage conversations between students as well.
