My philosophy on teaching is that if kids can’t learn the way we teach, we must teach them the way they learn. That means my classroom is typically a fun, active and challenging setting. My students come from a neighborhood that has a high crime and poverty rate. However, this does not mean that they should be treated as less than any other student in our state. I enjoy learning and teaching through games, small group instruction, physical movement, individualized learning goals, and a positive work environment.
One way to help keep the classroom organized is to add labels to the baskets. Adding labels with the words clearly printed on them also helps to promote the print-rich environment. I want the children to be able to put toys in baskets and baskets on shelves without having to rely on teacher directives.
Providing a print-rich classroom environment exposes children to reading in a functional way.
One aspect of a print-rich classroom is labeling. Labeling helps to create an environment that puts children at ease and contributes to self-directed learning. This is why I need to have good high-quality baskets and a picture printer in order to make fast and easy labels.
