My Students

My kids are full of curiosity, feelings, and energy. We are quickly developing a family-like community where we show interest in all of the members in our group. We have a brand new preschool program with busy hands and bodies that are ready to be engaged in learning through play, exploration, creativity, routine, peer interaction and plenty of dialogue and music. We focus on language and cognitive development, creativity, explorations, hands-on projects (no worksheets whatsoever), team building, gross motor development, and coordination. We enjoy singing, dancing, painting, pretend play and active outdoor play.

My Project

A Sprocket camera with instant photo printer will allow me to take photos of my students with their family members on the first day of school. I have a diverse group of students with Latin American and Asian backgrounds.

My students will feel like their family is part of our classroom community when they see their photos posted throughout our classroom.

It is important for preschool students to feel that they are part of a group that cares for them. The first few weeks of school can be very challenging for preschoolers because it is usually their first experience being away from their parents for so long. Please consider providing a comforting environment for my students.
