I work with a great group of preschool students that come from varying ethnic and socially economic backgrounds. Our students come in every morning enthusiastic and ready to learn. They are a very energetic, talkative and fun loving group who love to ask questions. Our school is located in a low income community. We strive to provide a safe learning environment for our students.
Hands-on learning is what our energetic students need to succeed.
We are trying to provide more of this learning style to prepare our students for higher grades to come. Our goal is to provide our students with a preschool learning experience that they will carry with them for years to come.
My students love making cards and pictures for their friends, family and other people! We need more resources to help them with early inventive writing skills, writing their names and other names and words from our word walls around the room. Many of these materials can be used throughout the room. We can "mail letters" in the writing area, run a restaurant in dramatic play, trace letters at the light table and so much more!
We want to make learning to write fun for the students!
Writing should be something they can enjoy doing, not just sitting and tracing! We use a variety of materials to help with writing now including dough and modeling clay to make letters, magnetic boards and chalkboards, and wooden shapes to form letters and words! These materials will help us add to the handwriting area and so much more!
