I teach in a multi-age classroom of 10 pre-k students and 10 kindergarten students. My students come from families that are struggling just to make ends meet. Over the summer I visited and worked with my upcoming kindergarten students once a week. I found that the problem wasn't that my parents didn't care about their children,it was that they didn't know how to help them. They also didn't have the resources to provide the materials that their children needed in order to experience success in school. My children are coming to me with a deficit in language that is going to take a lot of work to overcome. Moving from one stage of language development to another can take from sixteen weeks to a year. According to the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test six of my children are at least two years behind, eight are at least one year behind, and five are between two and elven months behind in their development. I only had one child who scored their age equivalent. I want to help my parents and my children by providing take home packets of story telling kits. I would like to have twenty kits that the children could rotate taking home thereby providing each child with twenty weeks of language activities that they and their parents could share. They will have a book and manipulatives that they can talk about and use to retell the story. This will allow my parents to join me in the effort to help their children become learners that do more than just struggle and score low average on tests. I want my children to really succeed!
