My Students

I teach 40 preschoolers every day. Preschool is usually their first exposure to school and I want to make it a positive experience. Students come to school in the morning or in the afternoon for 3 hours at a time. I want my students to be reading at the end of the year. My students come from a very economically diverse background. A lot of my students are learning English as their second language. They speak Somali, Vietnamese, Spanish, and Chinese. I have a lot of different cultures represented in my classroom. My biggest challenge is accommodating these different languages. Many students come to preschool not speaking or knowing any English.

My Project

Last year I asked for an art table where preschoolers could go and create. This area has been a big hit and I see a different side to them when they have art materials to create with. I have been letting them use the markers, crayons, paper, glue and tape I have in the classroom, but we are running out of supplies. I want to give them new materials to create artwork with.

With my limited budget I am not able to give them the open ended materials they need to make their artwork.

I know they are able to make different kinds of structures, pictures and art, they just need the right resources. I believe with these materials I will begin to see how creative they are when given the correct materials. I cannot wait to see what my preschoolers come up with when this project gets funded.
