My Students

As a teacher of students in low income/single-parent family homes, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. The students in my classroom have a range of different abilities.

Living in low income/single-parent family homes may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may deprive them of life experiences many of us see as "typical".

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

My students need games activities, an manipulatives that focus on fine motor skills to explore during Learning Center time. Our students will use these materials to explore their ability through building, counting, dance and movement! These activities will be used during Learning Center times throughout the day as well as during one on one time with the teachers. They will be able to use these manipulatives during our whole group and small group time, learning shapes and enjoying sensory activities.

Your generous donation to our project will improve our classroom by building a more independent toddler.

They will gain important fine motor skills that they will use later in life. This will change our students' lives for the better. They will love school and feel success at an early age --- having fun while learning!
