My Students

There are 15 PreK students in my class who represent several different cultures. Two of the students have already been identified as having a special need which does not keep them from interacting with their peers and learning new skills and information. Some of their family dynamics makes it challenging to appropriately express their feelings while interacting with their peers in a classroom setting.

The students in my class need a variety of concrete learning experiences and opportunities that will help them display socially acceptable behaviors in the classroom.

My students are bilingual which makes it easier for them to talk with classmates who are native English speakers. This also allows them to be able to understand the class rules and routines and follow teacher directions.

My Project

Many of my students are in school for the first time and have had limited interactions with people outside of their own family.

Once students learn social emotional skills that will help them express their feelings and feel safe at school, they are more receptive to learning the necessary academic skills to be prepared for Kindergarten.

My students need to understand that feelings may change and that everyone does not have to feel the same way at the the same time.

The emotions dolls will give them an opportunity to see what different emotions look like. They can use the mirrors to see what their face looks like when they have certain feelings. The students will learn ways to correctly identify their feelings and how to express their emotions in a socially acceptable manner.
