My students need to be able to have access to materials in order to develop basic preschool skills. The water table and the rug allows them the opportunities to work on several areas of development.
I am an exceptional children's preschool teacher for students ages 3-5. The majority of my students have some type of developmental delay. These delays can range from speech delays to autism.
My classroom also includes some typically developing peers.
They serve as role models for our children with special needs. After all, children learn best from other children.
Everyday we not only learn through play, but we develop strategies that help us to be great problem solvers. Early intervention rocks!
My students learn through play. They work hard and our toys and materials need to be replaced from time to time.
We are in need of a new water table and a rug for our block center.
Both learning centers help to develop my students' development. While engaging in water play, they are given the opportunity to develop their motor skills, problem solving abilities, increase their language development, and work on their math and science skills. The water table also allows children to have a place to calm down or be by themselves if they become anxious or overwhelmed. Our water table cracked at the end of this past school year. We need a new one.
The block center seems to always be one of the most popular centers in our classroom. Block play helps children to become problem solvers, use their imagination, and work on math, social/emotional, and motor development. Over the years, our rug began to unravel and after many attempts to fix it, it was finally determined that it was unfixable. When you walk into our classroom, one can see students building houses and towers with blocks. They use car, dolls, and buildings to help enhance their play. The rug helps them to have streets to drive down and places to build their houses. The rug helps to add to their imaginative play.
