Communication Is Key!

Help me give my students these wonderful preschool materials for our classroom. The Lakeshore Barn and Dollhouse Furniture are an absolute favorite with preschoolers. These materials encourage creativity, social skills and of course encourages language!

My Students

My students are from a small neighborhood school in Alaska. I currently have 23 preschool students. This is a communication classroom that supports preschool children who demonstrate a delay in expressive language skills.

My preschoolers love to play, explore, learn and discover things all around them.

Through collaboration with a teacher, teacher assistant and speech pathologist, we engage children in structured activities that target skills such as attending, listening, phonemic awareness, speech sound development, speech intelligibility and emergent literacy through play and adult directed activities. Our classroom needs some additional materials that would help support our goal of keeping children engaged and talking about the world around them.

My Project

The goal of a communication preschool classroom is to work on language skills; therefore, some of the materials I am requesting, such as an art easel, barn, and dollhouse furniture, are items that will encourage 3 and 4 year olds to express themselves. Many of these students are very hard to understand when talking to peers and adults. They become frustrated and may get upset or shutdown because no understands them. It can be difficult to make friends for them as well.

This classroom has been in place for approximately 13 years and materials have been well used and loved, but are falling apart and need to be replaced.

The flexible seating for our classroom library would provide a comfortable setting for peers to sit together and share a book, which again, helps to achieve the end goal of encouraging language skills.
