My Students

My students love coming to school! They quickly realize we provide a safe learning environment with a consistent routine designed for their specific needs. Our classroom provides the foundation for all of their future learning experiences!

My students all have special needs and are preschoolers ages 3 to 5.

They have been identified as having delays in their cognitive abilities, speech, physical skills, social skills, and or self-help skills. Their needs vary greatly, and they each have individual goals. Our school is considered high poverty and many receive a sack lunch to take home on the weekends.

My Project

These items will enhance students learning about science and letters. Hands-on learning helps students to engage in activities longer which is very critical for preschoolers and provides a dual effect.

These items will provide a variety of ways for students to learn Language Arts, STEM, and Fine Motor Skills.

Some of my students are delayed in their fine motor skills and academic skills. The Magnetic Letter Builders, Alpha Bots, Mighty Magnet set, and the Turbopop STEM Challenge set, will provide endless loads of learning fun for all of my kiddos!

We are promoting STEM as a school and need to include the preschoolers in this learning adventure!
