A Cozy Corner in Pre-K!

My students need a new high quality rug for large group time, and new books for our class library to add some variety on what books the read through out the year.

My Students

I teach Pre-K at a Title 1 elementary school in a smaller town. Our Pre-K program is a half day program, so I have 2 classes with about 22 students each. We also work very closely with our school's PPCD class (Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities). Most of the PPCD students spend a portion of their day in my Pre-K class for much needed inclusion time with their peers. My students range in age from 3-5 years old; some with intellectual or emotional disabilities, speech struggles, and possible ASD diagnosis. Many of my students have never been in a school setting, or even around larger groups of children their age. Because of this background, I have a very wide range that I am teaching to; some students may already know letter sounds and sight words, while some are still learning to recognize their names. My main goal is to help my students feel loved, safe, and excited to learn. Once that happens, academic growth takes place naturally. At this age everything is still new, we love to celebrate accomplishments and get so excited to learn new skills that will help in the upcoming years of elementary school.

My Project

My students spend quite a bit of time on our class rug through out the day; whether for large group time or during center rotations. At any given time, I may have anywhere from 22-28 students in my classroom. Are large rug like this will give each student their own personal space to sit and learn.

In order to best facilitate learning and focus, my students need to feel comfortable in the classroom.

Our library center is part of the daily center rotation. Students love the chance to sit and relax, and look at books with their peers. As a newer teacher, my library center is still relatively sparse; I would love to add in some new books for variety.
