My Students

Students in my kindergarten classroom come to school excited about learning. Many of my students come from low income families, and all the students at my school receive free lunch. This background can mean that students’ families can not afford to purchase needed school supplies.

My students deserve to receive the best education possible, so they are able to succeed in school and in life.

These boys and girls have such awesome attitudes, and they try their best every day!

My Project

My kindergarten students love to play! Each day, they have a time called choice time, where they are allowed to engage in play with their classmates. They have a choice of what they want to play with, but, sadly, we don't have a lot of choices for them. I would love for them to have more choices of toys that will help develop their fine motor skills.

I have requested toys, that the students will love and that will help develop their fine motor skills.

These include magnetic blocks, Legos, and magnetic drawing tablets. I would love for you to help me disguise fine motor skill development, through engaging toys. Fine motor skills are essential for students to be able to perform important tasks, especially writing.
