My Students

My students are enthusiastic learners and are beginning to understand and appreciate their environment and the world they live in. They enjoy hands-on activities and experiments. They appreciate anything that is donated to our class.

My Transitional Kindergarten students are eager to learn and become great mathematicians and scientist.

However, we lack some supplies to fulfill their needs. I teach wonderful, curious, and active students who live in a low income, high poverty area of Los Angeles. The majority of my students are second-language learners.

My Project

My students will use Play-Doh, Mad Mattr sensory dough and non hardening modeling foam to create a variety of things in the activity centers. The play-doh, sensory dough and nonhardening foam will help increase their fine motor skills, build hand strength, as well as hand-eye coordination. They will be able to create wonderful masterpieces that will go along with our math and science curriculum. This is a great way to have fun and engage the students in learning.

My students will be able to use a hands-on approach to create STEM Projects!

The sensory dough is perfect for creative and sensory exploration too. While they play and create they will be strengthening their hand muscles , which in turn will help develop neat handwriting and fine motor skills.
