My students range in ages from 3 years old to 5 years old. They all come to school with smiles on their faces every day even though they all come from low socio-economic families that struggle from day to day. Many of my students are new to this country and are still learning English among other things.
Many of my students have very limited schooling in their own language and are now thrust into a formal school setting with little knowledge of English and experience.
The primary languages that are spoken in the classroom include English, Burmese, and Napoli. Even though there are language barriers the children do not let that hold them back; they love to create, learn and explore!
As the teacher, I focus on their strengths and we will build on those to help strengthen any weaknesses. It is my job as the teacher to provide the students with the tools and knowledge they will need to succeed.
The alphabet learning tubs are perfect for exploring letter sounds, with the help of a variety of adorable miniatures for each letter of the alphabet. We can use the tubs to play memory games witch will help build vocabulary skills. They even include hard-to-find items like an igloo, X-ray, quilt and working yo-yo.
The geoboards will be used to help form shapes, which will enhance the students understand of two-dimensional shapes.
They will be able to create their own shapes and build an understanding of regular and non-regular polygons.
The Natural Blocks will allow the students to build their own trees. These blocks will be a great addition to our block center, especially during our tree study.
