My Students

Meet the Busy Bees! Our classroom family is made up of 20 extraordinary 3-5 year olds, and two teachers who love them! To qualify for Head Start, our students must be at or below the federal poverty limit, or have other needs such as homelessness, placement in foster care, etc.

Head Start not only provides education in the academics, but also focuses on teaching children how to manage their own emotions and work with others.

We create a classroom family in which we all work to help each other learn, grow, and stay safe!

Head Start also works with whole family to make sure that they have the resources they need to succeed. We provide opportunities for the parents to be involved in their child's education, as well as providing education for the parents when needed. And as a parent, can't we all use a little help sometimes? Head Start believes that every child can succeed, and we can't wait to help them!

My Project

My students need educational computer software like Patterning Adventures Activities, Pick-A-Trick Matching Letters and Sounds Interactive Game, and other interactive games to enhance learning while building computer skills. In today's world children need to be able to use a computer at an early age. Much of the aptitude testing they will complete in elementary school will require students be able to operate a computer with proficiency. In the past I have seen very bright students fail to show their true abilities because they did not know how to use a mouse. Using a computer in a preschool classroom allows the children to become familiar with them while in a less stressful environment. Children will also be paired together while on a computer so that those with more computer knowledge can help others.

This project includes software which has games that help children learn letter recognition, letter sounds, vocabulary, following directions using positional words, number recognition, counting and quantifying, and patterns.

Many of these skills are needed once children enter kindergarten. Some of the skills that children need most are skills that at times children have less interest in learning. By having engaging games, children will be more likely to want to create letters, or learn letter sounds, or learn to recognize numbers and count. By helping to complete this project you will be helping us to add to our classroom yet another way to engage children in learning so that all of our students are ready for kindergarten!
