My Students

I have the best job in the world. Each day, I walk into a classroom full of color and life. Then, my day gets even better when my 23 bright and unique four-year-olds walk into the room with excitement and eagerness to learn.

I am a K4 teacher in South Carolina and my classroom is made up of at-risk four year old children who are gearing up to be the best version of themselves in Kindergarten.

It is my job to build their foundation and love of learning and to provide a safe, nurturing, and challenging environment for them to thrive in. Many of my students are already behind when they enter my room, and I have the difficult job of bridging these gaps so they can be successful.

My Project

These materials will transform my classroom into a space where learning takes place by allowing students to explore and discover materials like they never have before! Kids today often don't have the chance to take non-traditional play materials and create something extraordinary. With materials like tree cookies, sticks, mosaic tiles, colored pebbles, rocks and minerals, sorting trays, mirrors, and many more, my students will use fine motor and math skills such as counting, sorting, and addition/subtraction. We will learn about our bodies and foods we can put into them to stay healthy with food sorting activities. We will also dive into astronomy for pre-k using space and planet activities in the classroom during whole group instruction and in our science center. We will have a chance to read the "Me and My Place in Space" book to get a better understanding of outer space to correspond with our astronomy unit.
