My students are comprised of Transitional Kindergarten students that that like to explore, ask questions, and move. There are currently 14 boys and 4 girls. They are a very active class that needs highly engaging activities to keep them motivated for their best learning. They enjoy learning through play and are very curious. Students like reading, drawing, coloring, painting, and building. They enjoy working in groups as they learn while at school.
My class enjoys learning new things by having hands-on experiences that use all of their senses.
Students will use the Lego Cafe set in the dramatic play area to recreate a restaurant. By incorporating the play set into the curriculum, English Language Learners will have the opportunity to engage with their peers in a cooperative play structure that encourages the use of common oral language structures and syntax. Students will use their imaginations to create interactions between "employees" and "patrons." Through the course of their imaginative play students will be developing social studies concepts of goods and services and oral language skills by engaging in dialogue with their peers. The interactions between students as they negotiate play will also help them develop their social skills. Math concepts will be incorporated with the use of play money in the center.
