My Students

For most of my students, this is the first time they have ever been to school. It is important to make sure the experience they get is a good one since it will set the mood for school for the rest of their lives. I want them to be as excited as I am about being at school and about learning.

My students are hard working and enjoy coming to school to grow their minds each day.

They have shown me a strong desire to learn and grow at such a young age.

My Project

I want to create a multi-sensory classroom to go along with our play-based program. I have observed that many of my students need more hands-on, kinesthetic activities. To help with solve this problem, I am requesting a sand and water table, alphabet stampers, alphabet shells and sand.

Sensory tables provide differentiated activities for multiple styles of learning.

By getting this table it allows me to use water, sand or add my own items into it. Some of the other needed are sand and letters and numbers for students to use while at the table. The table allows students to participate in hands-on activities to develop language skills, fine motor skills, interpersonal skills, and kinesthetic skills.

A sensory table can be used in many ways in a kindergarten classroom. They can be used for sorting activities, letter/word identification, and science projects. A sensory table will provide opportunities for students to work together and build literacy skills.

It can also be very beneficial for students with special needs that have sensory needs. Sensory table activities can also be aligned to monthly/seasonal themes to further learn about specific ideas (such as apples, pumpkins, fall leaves).
