My Students

This classroom is a mixture of three and four year old children. The children work in developmentally appropriate areas building skills for both social and academic growth. We have 15 children who truly care about each other and take pride in showing what they have accomplished.

As a class, we work independently in areas learning social skills, academic skills, and teamwork.

By watching the children's interactions and listening to conversations we create areas that they will enjoy as well as learn through their "work"

I want to be able to create learning centers that are vibrant with color and imagination.

My Project

I want to create an environment where my class will be so engaged in their "work" they will retain the concepts and skills needed for Kindergarten and beyond!

With the Cricut, it will help my class experience activities with thematic manipulatives and props.

In Preschool the pressure to be ready for Kindergarten is intense. I provide a preschool environment where the children can learn at a developmentally appropriate pace. With the Cricut, I will be able to create items for every skill, theme, unit, season, etc.

Children learn best through play. We "work" daily in our learning centers to learn skills and concepts to prepare the children for Kindergarten and beyond!
