My Students

I teach Pre-K in Michigan. We call it “transitional kindergarten” here. My kiddos are fantastic and they love learning. I want to help them stay organized and build their fine motor skills. In addition to building and strengthening our muscles, we are learning to be organized, clean and neat. The materials I have requested will allow us to do both: strengthen fine motor skills through play AND learn how to maintain and organize a classroom space and be held accountable to cleanup. The table caddies will allow for fine motor materials to be organized and within reach for each kiddo. The stickers ordered will let me reward positive behavior choices. The many pair of scissors ordered will let my kiddos practice their cutting....a very difficult fine motor skill. Thanks for supporting us!

My Project

We are consistently working on our fine motor skills as well as our classroom organizational skills. We are four and five years old so these things are very difficult for us at times. With the products listed, we can hopefully use and learn from them which will help us develop better fine motor skills and help keep our classroom organized. The table rainbow caddies will help us at our tables to neatly keep our pencils, scissors and crayons organized. The new blue scissors are much needed as we practice cutting by actually cutting.nee scissors are needed. The stickers will help us choose good choices and get rewarded for them. Lastly, the birthday crowns will let us celebrate our birthdays in fun ways!Our teacher can help us learn from the early year of school how to best keep things organized. She can help us help ourselves. Thank you so much for your support as we really appreciate it! We really can’t wait!
