My Students

Hello this is my first year teaching Pre-K. I teach Pre-K to students who are are economically disadvantaged. A lot of my students do not have a lot of parental interaction, so they do not receive that one on one time at home to help with their education. I have a classroom full of diverse learners and I am working my hardest to meet all of their needs.

I have several students who do not recognize their letters or their numbers.

I also have students who are more advanced with writing, spelling, and comprehension. For my students who are struggling I am working with them with teacher created resources and a lot of small group time. I could really use some help with meeting the needs of all my students with more resources since my time with them is limited. Thanks.

My Project

My students need Language Instant Learning Centers, Rhyming Sound Tubs to help enhance their rhyming. Science centers using magnets and a sink vs float kit and magnetic numbers with counters and three Wipe and Write Lapboards. Its the second semester of Pre-k 4 and we are working to get ready for kindergarten, my students have grown so much since August, but with a little more help from these resources I feel like we can meet all expectations. We could use the rhyming, beginning sound, and letters to work on all phonological awareness and become successful for all learners. We do not have any science resources at all and we could use these resources to build their knowledge in science. With the math wipe boards and magnets, we can build their knowledge with solving operations with manipulatives. We have come so far this year, but with these resources I do not have any doubt about my students' success.
