My Students

I have the best job in the world! I teach adorable pre-K students with special needs. My students are part of a program that connects pre-K students from a Title I program with my students. This program provides experiences that allow all of the children to appreciate and learn from each other. These preschoolers enter the classroom ready to learn, discover, and explore.

Circle time is one of the favorite times of day for these children as it gives an opportunity to connect with each other, learn important social skills as well as pre-academic skills.

They love to learn!

My Project

Baby Doll Circle Time provides a vehicle for children to connect with the adults in their environment in an enjoyable way. They will practice following directions and self-regulation. Using the baby dolls along with songs will help them process information, and will encourage joint attention. It will teach and foster empathy and support a "gentle touch" learning process and will also help children disengage stress.

Children will use the dolls along with songs to learn vocabulary and develop receptive and expressive language in a playful way.

They will manipulate the dolls to demonstrate comprehension and use expressive language (the baby is standing up) and to practice gentle touch and empathy (baby is sad...he needs you to rock him). Children will use the baby dolls to learn and practice pre-academic skills such as counting and identifying body parts during circle time.
