My Students

We are happy and exciting children who love our class! We learn through play, and we play to learn! We play all day, sometimes, we have a difficult time calming down.

Please be a "PAL" and help us out!

We are a Preschool for All Leaners class, our abilities vary from down syndrome and autism to speech and health impairments. We are 3 and 4 year old's that have some special abilities that take extra time and special help to grow. Some of us have down syndrome, and we like to have quiet moments to ourselves. Some of us have autism, and we like to be sang to and be hugged extra tight.

We love to make and play with play dough. Our favorite activity is music and movement.

With your help, we can have access to all our favorite things!

My Project

Help, we have the wiggle worms! We are happy and exciting children who love our class! Sometimes, we have a difficult time calming down. We are 3 and 4 year old's that have some special abilities that make it difficult for us to settle down during reading time or when we are upset. We want our teacher to provide an area for us to calm down and unwind from the things going through our minds. Please be a PAL and help us out!

This tent will be a great space to hide from the stressors of preschool.

One of my friends gets so frustrated, my teacher has made him a quiet space out of fabric and cardboard, but we love it so much that it fell apart.
