My Students

My students are the future. I want to give my students the skills and tools to become engaged, inquisitive lifelong learners who have both the knowledge and the understanding to be positive leaders in our global world.

I teach Pre-Kindergarten in an international magnet program in an urban public school serving students of diverse national heritages, languages, and cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Our class is almost a mini United Nations, and I encourage the children to develop personal cultural awareness, as well as respect, and appreciate the amazing diversity of the world around them. I teach a diverse group of students with various levels, needs, and interests. All of my students are curious and enthusiastic. They are filled with questions about themselves and the world around them. My students learn best through exploration and play, and I find that their learning experience is more meaningful and potent when they are having fun.

My Project

Learning letter names and sounds is one of the main academic skills that we focus on in Pre-K. Letter symbols can often be abstract to young learners and I need materials to help make learning more concrete and memorable.

Learning letters can be fun and engaging with games such as the Magnetic Alphabet Fishing Set and multi-sensory letter writing sand trays.

I will use the Magnetic Alphabet Fishing set to have fun fishing for capital and lowercase letters during small group time. The Sterilite Clip Boxes will be made into colored sand trays and will be used as a sensory activity to practice letter recognition, writing and phonics in a concrete hands on way. This great materials will help my students develop the early literacy skills they need to be successful learners.
