"I love this book!" "Look, I can read this story all by myself!" "Watch me draw a rectangular prism with my finger!" "Listen to this cool song I learned about the solar system!" These are just a few of the phrases I get to hear each day.
My students are all five and six year old kindergarteners and are EXTREMELY eager to learn!
I teach at an inner city bilingual charter school. Imagine going to school for the first time as a five year old. Now imagine seeing letters, words, numbers, and maps for the first time. Now imagine learning all of this in English while also learning to read and write in Spanish! This is exactly what my amazing and talented students do each day! My students love to sing and dance during every lesson. The more hands-on, the better! In such a technology-based world, it is so important to help them learn through technology as often as possible while still providing them with the basic tools needed in everyday learning. It is my goal to help them have access to everything they need to be the successful learners I know they are!
My students are beginning to learn about money. They love their time in the dramatic play center. I am excited to teach them about healthy foods and how we can find them in a grocery store. I would love the opportunity to allow them to use the pretend foods and shopping carts to take their own trip to the new class grocery store to find fresh healthy foods. Having a pretend money and a pretend cash register will allow them the chance to practice identifying and counting their money as well as help them develop the understanding that we need to use money to pay for our food. We are also in need of a storage unit for our dress up clothes. Right now the students have the opportunity to dress up as community helpers and characters. They get to create their own story with one another while pretending to be something they are not. Unfortunately we do not have a storage unit that provides the students the chance to learn how to correct put away and store their dress up clothes and accessories. With your help and generous donations my students will be able to learn more about the real world around them and use these every day life skills to further their learning in the community.
