My Students

I am a teacher at a center in Ohio. We are a grant funded center/home based 5 star program that services families from pregnant moms up to kids age 5. We are located in an impoverished area and service numerous homeless families. It is very hard for us to obtain the supplies we would like or need for our classroom.

Donations are what keeps our program running so we are still able to help our children obtain the education they deserve.

Some of my students come into my class seeing books or learning supplies for the very first time. I am always looking for ways to acquire new items for my students to broaden their knowledge. Whenever we introduce a new toy or activity to our students their faces just light up which makes our day.

My Project

In the grade I teach my students start learning about differences in weights, height, and size. They love to explore by building things with blocks which is why I believe the magna tile blocks would be perfect because they not only will be able to build with these blocks but they will also be able to learn their shapes while building. These will also allow them to learn about magnets and how they work.

I believe allowing students to learn while being hands on is the best way to help them learn.

That's why I think having games that show them how things weigh different but can eventually be the same weight will be very beneficial in the classroom. Our job as preschool teachers is to set the foundation of learning for our students. For this reason I want to make sure my students are given every opportunity available to make this happen so they can succeed.
