I am a preschool teacher with a classroom of 4- and 5-year-old students. These students come from low-income families that face many challenges on a daily basis. I am looking to provide a variety of ways to give them quality learning experiences while preparing them for Kindergarten.
My students are imaginative, playful and have a desire to learn and create.
While they all receive free breakfast, lunch and a snack, this only equips their bodies to be able to learn. Through positive attention and hands-on learning, my students explore and learn about a variety of topics.
Many materials are not an option at home, so we do our best to provide what we can for them while they are at school. We want to make learning fun and set them up for a successful future and continue their love of learning.
It is my job to expose my students to as much as I can in a safe and fun learning environment The materials such as the guessing games will expose my students to different sounds and textures. The magnets will allow them to explore their environment and create their very own science experiments. The color changing board will allow them to explore hot and cold while still working on their fine motor skills and the baskets will help keep the area neat and tidy so they take pride in their room.
Many of my students come from home environments in which they do not have access to many materials.
It is very difficult for me to afford and find materials that fit my students' needs. These materials would benefit my students' educational experience and help me expose them to the world around them.
