Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students range in ages from four to five years. About half of my students have attended a pre-kindergarten program previously. At this age, the students' attention spans are very short.
Because the curriculum requires the students to demonstrate organizational skills so as to be able to better concentrate on tasks, and follow multi-steps directions, I need to organize materials so that they are readily available for the students to use.
I am in the process of training my students in how to use class materials effectively and quickly so as to not waste instructional time, because we have so much to do during our instructional periods with everything else that is happening during the school day.
I believe that a student's use of classroom materials supports his ability to learn effectively.
I believe that how you organize your classroom space demonstrates how your organize your learning - organized space, organized brain. Students who are organized tend to be able to better organize their learning. These students seem to remember more of what was taught in the classroom. This is why my students need the Storage Seat Pockets. Presently, they have to get up and move to their cubbys when they need supplies or work packets.
If kindergarten students are being required to concentrate on tasks and follow multi-steps directions, then the adults in the classroom should do whatever is necessary to help them.
As the teacher, it is my responsibility to make sure that students are focused on instruction as much as possible.
