Many of my students come into class and they are not always able to reach and see the materials that they need. When the kids come to our school they are excited to learn, to make new friends, and be a part of our school. It is important for them to be able to reach what they need so they can develop independence and self confidence. For most of our kids it is the first time they have ever been in a school setting and we want them to feel successful. We have the pleasure of having 32 Title 1 Pre-K students (most of them are on free and reduced lunch) we have the possibility of going up to 40 kids.
In our classroom we are inventors, scientist, engineers, and the list goes on, so we need to be able to reach the materials we are looking to use.
We are a half day program and have lots of different interests, so being able to put out more materials at their level will appeal to all the students in my class. They will love being able to reach and see everything they need.
We have lots of materials in our class that get put away too high or shoved to the back of a cabinet and the kids are not able to access them or forget about them. The new shelves will allow my students to be able to see and reach the items so they will be able to use them.
Being able to find and use the materials the kids need, without having to search for them, will allow them to use their time efficiently.
These new shelves will make it so the kids are not wasting time looking for materials. They will also allow the kids to have the materials down at their level so they can see and reach them. The kids will love the shorter shelves so they can reach and see everything.
