I have the pleasure of teaching 18 four and five year old students. Many of them have never attended a structured school setting. My job is to provide a safe and inviting environment that fosters an early love of learning. My school is a Title 1 school in the state of Alabama where 100% of the school population receives free lunch.
My Pre-K students are energetic, curious and have a natural love for learning.
They are inquisitive and learn best through play. Every day in our class is a new adventure!
My goal is to provide opportunities and materials that will allow my students to explore early science, technology, engineering, art and math concepts.
Having an aquarium in our Pre-K classroom will allow my students to have hands-on experiences caring for and bonding with their pet fish each day. Sadly, our current fish tank no longer functions properly. A new fish tank will allow students to see our fish clearly as they begin to understand how caring for their fish is so important.
Studies have shown that having a fish in any classroom has a relaxing and calming effect on all children.
Although my classroom has a variety of personalities, skill sets, backgrounds and needs, ALL students will benefit social-emotionally by having a classroom aquarium.
