Treasures and Toys as Learning Incentives for Preschoolers!

My students need toys such as glitter putty and balls to be used as learning incentives in our treasure chest!

My Students

My students are bright preschoolers with special needs. They are three to five-year-olds with various disabilities including Autism, Cerebral Palsy, other health impairment, and speech/language delays.

My students are from low-income families and almost all are English Language Learners.

Some have just arrived in the United States from Mexico with parents who do not speak English. Despite the many challenges they face, they come ready each day to learn and play with the most positive attitudes.

It has been a true blessing to watch my students learn and grow. Their determination and eagerness to learn are what fuels me. These young scholars amaze me every single day with their big hearts! A day in our classroom consists of enthusiasm, energy, and excitement. Every accomplishment, big or small, is celebrated!

My Project

It’s been a great school year for us! As the school year is coming to an end, our treasure chest is looking near empty. This is a special treasure chest all my students know well. I teach a preschool special education class and my students are rewarded for good behaviors and staying on task frequently. It keeps them highly motivated.

This project will help us replenish the toys in our treasure chest.

We will be adding pencils, people figurines, glitter putty, slap bracelets, bouncy balls, and so much more. Positive reinforcement is huge in our class. It is a simple way of encouragement, letting my students know we recognize they are trying their best. They always feel so proud and happy when they are able to pick a toy to play with knowing they made good choices.

Thank you for your support in bringing this project to life for us!
