Our Head Start classroom offers 20 children of low-income families who are three and four years old experiences that maximize their total development. In our school family, we strive to create an environment where students feel safe to explore and learn.
Our students are not only creative, energetic and loving but genuinely excited for learning.
The students in my class learn best from hands-on and exciting experiences. Although it looks like we’re just playing, we are engaging in activities that teach us the specific skills we need to grow. Through play-based learning, we are able to offer our children an opportunity to explore and engage with their peers while developing their cognitive, language and social-emotional skills. By engaging our kids through their interests we are fostering a love of learning as well as a strong foundation for school success.
My students have been working extremely hard this year on their alphabet knowledge and pre-reading skills. I would love to give them the light table and Marbotic deluxe kit to create an immersive and hands-on learning experience that my students can engage in and grow.
These new additions can help enhance their learning and provide new centers to practice important literacy skills in a fun and hands-on way.
The Marbotic Deluxe Kit combines technology and wooden puzzle manipulatives to create a learning experience that combines the best of both worlds. The possibilities are endless when it comes to the Play and Explore Color Changing Light Center. My initial plan is to implement this as one of our learning rotations using the manipulatives purchased.
After ten years of teaching, the joy of students learning through play and using materials they might not otherwise get a chance to work with never gets old.
