My Students

I am one of the pre-k educators at my school. Our class of 20 little learners, ages four and five, are excited but nervous to come to school for the first time. These students come from urban and rural backgrounds, and most are from Native American families.

We are striving to provide a welcoming, stimulating, and safe environment for all our students, to help them grow into lifelong learners.

In this classroom children are taught in both English and Dakota.

My Project

The couch we are requesting will encourage reading in our classroom. It will offer several children a shared space to sit and read books, as well as a location for small group reading with a teacher.

Enjoying books and stories during preschool is key to reading success in higher grades.

Our preschoolers really enjoy books, and space is at a premium in our reading corner. Our current tiny couch is falling apart and often has as many as three children trying to squeeze onto it. A large couch will allow enough seats for multiple students to read at a time, and offers a cozy venue for guided small group learning.
