I am currently working as a preschool special education teacher for eight students between the ages of three and five years old at P811M, The Mickey Mantle Public School. Research has demonstrated that students learn using a variety of different modalities, including visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning (learning by doing). We use an interdisciplinary approach to learning focusing on thematic units. The students are encouraged to develop, refine, and apply their cognitive skills through the use of different mediums, such as music and art. Lessons and activities are structured around learning pre-readiness skills such as: following directions, increasing the student's creativity, developing an appreciation for different types of music and art, and identification of letters, numbers, and shapes. I am requesting music CDs, collage pots, stampers and other art and music supplies. All materials purchased will be used directly with the students to enhance their learning experiences. Please help our emerging musicians and artists increase their diverse learning experiences. Our young learners thank you in advance for all your support and generosity.
