My Students

My students are special because they are early learners who come from low-income families and are eager to learn and explore the curriculum of pre-k which includes the exploration of child development. I would like to make sure my students are able to explore a variety of learning opportunties in class. I would like for my students to be able to leave pre -k well prepared for kindergarten and to conquer any dream they have in life. My students love coming to school to learn everyday. I would like to introduce my students to the arts. There are some students who love music and love to design and create beautiful things for our class. I would like to give my students an opportunity to be creative geniuses. Many of my early learners are excited about art. My students will be able to benefit and explore the arts if they were equipped the resources to work with.

My Project

The resources such as paint and the cd/radio and ink will make a difference in students learning because it will allow the students to explore and learn about themselves in in a visual and creative way in art. Students will be able to experiment with different colors and students will be able see the talent they have in their movements when it come to creative dancing . Students will be able to be creative using their imagination . Their stories will be be printed and published for other classmates to see. This will motivate other students to enhance their ability in the art area as well.
