My Students

As the school year begins for some of my students, this is their first experience in a classroom. I teach in a GSRP classroom that is a state-funded program for 4 and 5-year-old children that come from low-income families. These children are excited to get into the classroom and are ready to learn. This year our model for the students is how to self-regulate. We will be using a model called couscous disaplin teaching the children how to cope with stressful situations so they are better equipped to learn.

My Project

By bringing the community LEGO people and community garages to the classroom the children will be able explore people with different capabilities, different color skin, and different jobs that are not in their homes in a safe environment to ask questions about why people are different than them through play . This will make the children aware of others around the world, in their towns, and in the community. In preschool we are teaching the children how to become more aware of themselves and others. This makes them more sensitive to people that are different from themselves and making them comfortable with people that are different than them.
