My Students

This preschool classroom, heavily influenced by Montessori and Reggio Emilia, provides two, 2.5-hour sessions for students who are three to five years old. Our sessions can provide services for up to fifteen students at a time.

Ours is an integrated classroom model with half the students on Individualized Education Plans.

The other half of the students are peer models from the community. All students benefit from the integrated model and learn from and with each other.

We focus heavily on classroom community, individual creativity, growing expressively, and preparing for the academic skills needed later in school.

My Project

This project will purchase materials to enhance our music and movement time, as well as bring technology and independent reading into my book corner.

With the music rhythm sticks and Musical Scarves & Activities set, I will be able to provide a wider variety of movement activities in our classroom, so students can expel energy, work on coordination and express themselves through their bodies.

The accompanying CDs will also introduce my students to more diverse music.

The Best-Buy Storage Center, CD player, and book/CD sets will allow my students the ability to share a book with a peer or enjoy some quiet time by themselves. It will also encourage self-confidence, by allowing my students to"read" by themselves and practice early literacy skills. Requested books include Caps for Sale, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Planting a Rainbow, and Where the Wild Things Are.

The Calming Colors Little Beanbag Seat will be a great option to sit on in our book corner, or if a student just feels like they need to take a rest.
