My Students

My developmental needs pre-k classroom serves students from ages 3 to 4 years old. My students are a group of diverse individuals that comes from different economic levels, cultural backgrounds, and academic needs. In our classroom, my students receive services from an Occupational Therapist, Speech/Language Therapists, and a Physical Therapist to help them with their needs so they can be successful throughout life. Daily, in my classroom, we strive to meet students' individualized goals and standards that are set by for 3K for all. In my classroom, we enjoy large/small groups, hands-on assignments, pictures cues, repetition, and structure.

My Project

I would like the Easel so that I can use it as a tool for my students to be able to do more learning on the carpet. I would like to also use the Easel for small and large group instruction. I am so excited to see what my kids can do with more tools to be able to use in the classroom to enhance their learning and expand their knowledge.

The Easel will make a huge difference in my classroom by helping the students who need more one-on-one instruction and also the students who need to be challenged.

This would mean the world to my students and myself and help so much.
