My Students

My scholars are enthusiastic about learning. They are 20 preschoolers who live in an urban area and come from low income homes. Scholars at my school are inquisitive, compassionate, and creative.

My energetic scholars enter the classroom ready to learn, discover, and explore.

We are a family in my classroom and we treat each other like that. My scholars are caring and ready to learn all the information that can.

We appreciate all of the support we get, thank you!

My Project

My students love playing with toys the can manipulate, and this train track will excite them and help with their fine motor skills.

While my students play with the trains the will invaluable social skills like problem solving on their own.

The will have to work together and use their words to build the train track. Also the will have to use their words to problem solve.

The storage bins are to keep the materials together. This will help teach the students how to be responsible with the materials and put them away.

My students will treasure these trains and the memories the will make with them.
