My Students

As a Pre-K teacher in a low income area, my students are inquisitive, curious active explorers and are vessels ready to learn. My students learn mostly through exploration and play. Language is developed when I listen to and speak with students during center time and during small groups. I also make sure to have individual conversations with each child throughout the day. My students are encouraged to talk about what they are doing during the day and to tell simple stories.

Many of my students are from single parent households and they receive free breakfast and lunch as part of the Head Start Program.

Some of my children have disabilities ranging from hyperactivity, attention deficit disorder, speech and language difficulties. I try to engage all students by getting to know and understand each student so that I can help them learn best.

My Project

My Pre-k students could benefit greatly by having a portable projector, cart and screen in our classroom. There are many interactive websites that would engage my students in learning.

My students would benefit from gross motor activities, math and literacy games, songs and activities.

Technology is needed to truly engage my 21st century students to become well versed in their learning.

I have many students whose learning styles are auditory, kinesthetic and visual and by incorporating a projector in our classroom, students would gain a better sense of understanding of material and all students needs and learning would be addressed.
