I teach in a low-income/high poverty school district. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide my students with an opportunity to explore the world around them. Creating an environment where students are encouraged to learn is something that has always been important to me.
I may not be able to control the home life of my students, but I am able to provide them with a positive learning experience in the family learning center.
The students I serve range between three and five years old. I am working to provide these students with an engaging learning environment in the Family Learning Center. By doing this in a creative and encouraging manner I will hopefully be able to give them a foundation so they can continue on the path of academic success. I believe a positive preschool experience lays the building blocks for rest of their education.
These materials will allow our preschoolers to spend time with their classmates and families while engaging them in many areas of play including, science, art, and mathematics. These new materials will help our students learn through play and discovery. The sand and water table will be used as a sensory bin for the kids to explore their senses through the different types of materials. The art materials like stamp pads and dot paint markers will be used in our Art center so kids can express creativity through art. We would like a cash register to replace an old broken one in our grocery store unit as our kids love to mimic their parents grocery shopping.
