In the Pre K classroom, children love learning. They are kind, caring enthusiastic learners who greet everyone with big smiles and squishy hugs.
There's a joyful buzz emanating from the Pre K classroom at our school.
This elementary school offers one of the few Pre K programs across the district, and as a result the classroom is beautifully diverse: representing the wide spectrum of cultures, languages, social classes, and family structures found in one of the most diverse cities in the nation. Our school is a Title I school, with 86% of students participating in the free and reduced-price lunch program.
The Pre K classroom is nurturing and collaborative. There are some basic supplies, materials, and play things that would enable us to take learning and play time to the next level for our students. Thank you for supporting our classroom!
Currently, our block play station leaves much to be desired. Blocks are big, heavy, dirty, and old. There is a core group of boys who play with these each day. However, I am convinced that if they weren't so large and unattractive, the rest of the students, especially the girls, would want to play with them, too. There is definitive research about the power of block play for primary learners. In order for all students to have an equitable opportunity to engage in this important form of collaborative play, we need to upgrade our block play station. Please help us!
