My Students

Pre-K is one of the most important grades in a student's school career. More important than learning their basic letters and numbers, they learn to share and use materials and how to behave. The most important thing they learn is what I like to call "how to school." Instilling a love for school is my ultimate goal.

To qualify for Pre-K, my students need to be either low income or English language learners.

Most of my students are both. My class is diverse in race, ethnicity, and religion, with students who are Ethiopian, Hindi, Hispanic, and more. We are a special group, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. The students learn love and tolerance, respect and responsibility, fun and work.

My Project

We need art supplies for our art center and projects. My students are creative and love to explore with different art supplies. Hands-on learning is so important for Pre-K. We need a variety of art supplies available to allow students to learn in many different ways. We need crayons, watercolor paint, oil pastels, markers and other art supplies.

Through art (painting, drawing, gluing, writing) we build vocabulary, create projects, and increase creativity and pride in our work.

The art center is one of the most important centers in my classroom. There students learn to use materials they will use for the rest of their elementary school careers. They get to explore with things they can't always use at home. They get to create and learn in a fun and engaging way!
