My students come from a very low-socioeconomic background, and have limited opportunities. Currently many of my students are staying in shelters or with extended family members. My scholars come in each day hungry for breakfast and lunch. As a result of the poverty, the students frequently lack the necessary school supplies.
Despite the many challenges they face, my scholars are a motivated, caring, and energetic group of Pre-K friends.
They come to school excited and ready to learn.
It is my goal to give each child a fulfilling learning experience, while also giving them access to the experiences that other children their age receive.
I would like to add some different sensory table options to my classroom because young children learn with all their senses. Preschoolers are constantly learning and exploring about their world by touching, tasting, smelling, seeing and hearing, which is why it is important to have many sensory experiences available at school. I plan to keep my sensory table appealing and interesting to promote different learning styles by adding various sensory material and tools. I would like to change these items out seasonally and incorporate them to our lesson themes.
Sensory tables give students the opportunity to learn many different subject areas through exploration!
I intend to provide the sensory area to provide an opportunity for my students to engage in learning through play. This will also give the students the opportunity to work together and gain social skills.
