Growing And Changing In PreK
My students need a greenhouse, specimen center, and life cycle libraries to help them learn how living things grow and change. We will be using the materials to learn about plants and animals.
Don't you just love spring? I love looking around at the trees getting leaves, flowers blooming, and animals changing. The prekindergarten students would love materials to help them learn about the changes in living things.
My co-teacher and I work with 4 and 5 year old students.
We have both special needs and typically developing students in our class. Many of the students come from socioeconomically challenged homes and don't have many opportunities to explore outside of the school day.
The materials we're requesting will give the students vivid models of how living things grow and change throughout their lives. We are hoping to get a window greenhouse so the students can see how things grow from roots, models of life cycles, and books about how things grow and change. These things will allow them to explore using hands on activities that facilitate language skills. This is critical for our special needs students. We are going to use the materials to study a variety of plants and animals and relate these skills to past learning themes such as seasons and animals.
This project is very important because hands on learning is the foundation of a good early childhood education program.
By providing these hands on tools you are helping students visual things that were never within their reach due to disabilities or family backgrounds.
