Ms. Welch from Springdale AR is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Pre-K Classroom With a View

My students need an up-close view of the wonders of natural resources with Science Viewers, Weather and Seasons Viewers, as well as From Around the World Viewers to build their background knowledge.

My Students

Ranging in ages from 4 to 5 years old, my Pre-K students come from diverse cultural backgrounds and speak languages such as Spanish, Marshallese and Korsan. In order to qualify for our Pre-K program, parents’ income must be below the poverty level.

Because many of my students lack the opportunities to travel and gain important background knowledge, I feel it is my responsibility to provide them with as many "real-life” experiences as possible.

Unfortunately, for my students, their limited tech knowledge comes in the form of video games. I would like to introduce some “old school” technology with something fun like the traditional View Finder/View Master. Students will be able to switch from one fascinating picture to another whether it be an up-close view of natural resources or interesting images of other countries, cultures and customs. In Pre-K, our experiences may be limited, but our “view” of the world can be endless!

My Project

Technology does not always have to come in the form of a computer. Even though it is a simple form of technology, I want my students to enjoy their Free Choice time at the Science Center by using these rugged machines - plastic viewers - to explore life like pictures of natural resources such as animals, sea life, insects and spiders, birds, and life cycles of these various creatures in their natural habitats. My students will have an up-close view of the climate, weather patterns and the four seasons to enhance our Weather Unit. They will also be able to expand their view of the world by looking at pictures from far away countries, and looking at photos of other cultures and customs.
