My Students

Our Pre-K classroom is filled with laughter and learning each and every day. Many children come from single-parent homes and all of the children are receiving free breakfast and lunch each day. For many of these children, school is their safe haven and I want to give them the best that I can.

My children are three and four years old and in school for the very first time.

Our day is filled with many activities. We are reading, coloring, singing, playing, and moving all day long. My children are energetic and eager to learn all that they can!

My Project

Teaching children about diversity should occur from their very first experience in school. We have been doing a lot of cooking in our classroom. I try to make all of our cooking experiences fun and hands-on. I would like to incorporate different cooking activities that show the children how and what other people eat from near and far.

There are so many ways to teach about diversity and I would like to do it through cooking.

The food mill and electric skillet will provide us with additional tools to start trying out new recipes. The book "What's on Your Plate?: Exploring the World of Food" will help us learn about food from all over the world and give us ideas to try!
