My Students

I teach 40 preschoolers from the ages of three to five! My students come from a variety of backgrounds with a variety of developmental levels and needs. My students enjoy learning through hands-on learning experiences. My classroom is about building the skills to help my students be ready for Kindergarten. We focus on not only readiness skills, but also social interactions, appropriate play, self-regulation, and so much more! I want to provide my students with the best learning experience—one that leaves a lasting impression throughout their first school experience.

My Project

The materials I have selected will be used across multiple activities that will engage my students in many different developmental domains.

These activities will help students strengthen their fine motor skills, have peer interactions, and have experiences within school that will prepare them for Kindergarten, and SO much more!

As a new teacher, I am still trying to grow the collection of materials within my classroom. The students I serve come from many different backgrounds, including many children with developmental needs. My students would be thrilled to engage in some new learning experiences!
