My Students

My students are 4-5 years old and are caring, curious, creative, kind and enjoy exploring the world around them! They are busy and enjoy moving, dancing and playing games. The majority of these students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Thank you for taking an interest in supporting these amazing children!

My Project

These materials will help make a difference in my students learning by allowing them more opportunities to explore and use their imaginations. These items will be used at school to help students interact with one another and encourage them to build inquiry and conversational skills.

Since these students have spent half of their lives at home in quarantine, there is a need for students to socialize and establish relationships with other students.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about my amazing preschoolers and further develop their learning!
