My Students

I am currently teaching 20 bright-eyed pre-kindergarten students. We are a Title I school. Many of the students receive free breakfast and lunch. These students also come from low-income homes with little or no English spoken at home. The school I work at ranges from grades Pre-K to fifth grade, with about twelve hundred students.

Despite our large numbers, our goal is to make each and every child special, so they can make a difference.

Pre-kindergarten is the first learning experience for my students, and I want each of them to love coming to school to learn.

My Project

Everyday my students gather around n our carpeted area for a meeting. We talk about letters, numbers, rhyming and days and of the week. Currently, this information is scattered n several locations. A new Center Time Chart would help students focus their attention. Since our board is magnetic, strong magnetic hooks will help keep the chart anchored on our wall.

Bright, colorful, interactive activities help keep students engaged during our class meetings.

I look forward to having this chart in my classroom and give each child have a opportunity to be the teacher to their peers. Students love to learn and teach one another.
