My Students

There are 15 PreK students in my class who represent several different cultures. Two of the students have already been identified as having a special need; however, that does not keep them from interacting with their peers and learning new skills and information.

The students in my class need a variety of concrete learning experiences and opportunities that will help them learn basic academic skills as they prepare for Kindergarten next year.

My students are bilingual which makes it easier for them to talk with classmates who are native English speakers. This also allows them to be able to understand the class rules and routines and follow teacher directions.

My Project

The sensory dough will help stimulate the students' creativity and develop fine motor strength. The Pre-Writing Magnetic Board will help students learn how to make the lines and curves that are used to form letters. Students will have lots of fun with the Learning Letters Activity Centers as they learn to make, recognize and write letters of the alphabet.

Students do not realize that they are learning while they are playing.

I like to incorporate fun activities that help the children learn to recognize letters, numbers, and other basic skills. While using the magnetic numbers and counters the students will learn to recognize numbers, count, and match sets of objects to a specific number.

These materials will definitely help the students learn through play.
