My Students

Valley Park Elementary School serves a wide range of students with very diverse backgrounds and socioeconomic status.

My students are little energetic, inquisitive balls of wonder who love to play and explore and discover new things every day.

I would love for them to have the opportunity to extend our fairy tale work with these kits! These activities would also be a fantastic project for the kindergarteners to work on with their 4th grade buddies. Their insight would be a great way to evaluate plans and redesign.

My Project

Our kindergarteners currently work with fairy tales and have a great time retelling them over and over! They are naturally inquisitive and love to for more!

These kits will give our kindergarteners the opportunity to build critical language and literacy skills, master early engineering skills and boost creative expression!

We will focus on three of our favorite stories; The Three Little Pigs, The Three Billy Goats Gruff and The Three Bears. Included are hard cover books to read the stories, puppets to retell stories, comprehension activities and social emotional discussion questions. The kits also contain the materials to explore challenging situations that arise in the tales. How might you build a chair Goldilocks can't break, a bridge safe from the troll or a house that can't be blown down.
