My Students

This will be my second year teaching Pre-K at a low income school. The students at my school are predominantly hispanic students who have never had access to things such as technology. Some students don't know how to hold a pencil it fills me with pride to be the first teacher that they can learn with. What makes this age group so special is that they see the world with so much beauty. The world is their canvas and I hope I can help them paint a better tomorrow. They are our future.

My Project

My 4 year old students need dry erase crayons for our classroom because they are fun to work with and I don't want to bore them with just regular pencils. They are also less messy than dry erase markers. The dry erase easel is perfect for our teacher led center in which we will incorporate guided reading this year. The alphabet resources requested deviate from just the normal tracing of the alphabet, modeling the letters with clay form of teaching 4 year-olds the alphabet. I hope that this shows them that learning is fun and that school is a place that they should look forward to attending.
