My Students

My pre-K students come into our classroom every day looking forward to a new learning opportunity. One of their favorite parts of the day is called small group time. During this time, students work alongside 8 other students and me to develop their kindergarten readiness skills.

I expose them to different types of student-friendly activities that tap into the 7 domains of Early Childhood Development.

These domains are gross motor, fine motor, language, cognitive, social-emotional, adaptive and moral.

I want my students to have a positive view of school and to feel successful in grades to come. I teach at a Title I school in a large city in Michigan where almost all of my students are living at or below the poverty line. Many of my students had no prior experiences with basic kindergarten readiness skills before entering my classroom.

Despite their struggles, my students deserve the best classroom environment, one that allows them to blossom in the previously mentioned areas.

My Project

Daily cleaning and healthy snacks are huge parts of the preschool classroom. Everything from dress up clothes to computers must be properly cleaned and sanitized in a preschool classroom to prevent the spread of germs. I am requesting various cleaning and sanitizing products. These products include Lysol wipes, bleach, laundry detergent, soap, tissue and paper towels. I am also requesting healthy snacks for my students because, I know how hard it can be to focus on learning when you are hungry.

These supplies will help my students and I keep our bodies fueled our classroom clean,run the cootie monsters away.

When a classroom is properly cared for, students are exposed to fewer germs which will cut down on the number of sick students. And fewer sick students means that the amount of sick days will decrease and classroom attendance will improve. Furthermore, when a body's basic need for food and water is met, little minds can focus more on academics. This means more preschoolers are in the classroom learning awesome new things.
