My Students

I teach a preschool inclusion class that has typically developing students along with non-typical developing students. Each day it is a new challenge and a new adventure within the lives of each student. I look forward to each milestone they reach daily.

The area of students I serve is from a low-income base area.

The parents are awesome but the ability to serve them in the 21st century sometimes is challenging. Things we as typical developing adults take for granted these students work hard daily to reach a simple goal of feeding themselves or even taking a step to reach one end of the room to the other. These students face challenges of no communication skills to limited movement. As a teacher, I am always looking for ways for them to be able to function within the class and outside the class the best of their ability. Being able to enjoy all aspects of the class is my heart desire.

My Project

I feel as though the dramatic play center is one of the most important components of a preschool classroom. It’s where young children engage in creative play, learn about their community, role-play various careers and situations, develop and practice life skills, and gain experience with items and tools they’ll use as adults. The items I include will have a large impact on what children learn as they play in the learning center. Each month I take pride in developing a center that will brighten the horizon of each student learning. Children at this age learn everything through play. Any of the items featured in the list below would be great additions to your dramatic play center:

The Ice Cream set allows them to learn colors, count, and hand-eye coordination.

The doctor's office kits help with letter and shape recognition using the many different charts, getting a better understanding of the job of a doctor. May one day they will be interested in becoming a doctor when they grow up. The pet/vet Clinic help students learn the importance of taking care of pets and learning great responsibilities. The pots and pans along with the appliances will give the students a chance to cook like mom and dad. House cleaning set helps the student learn how to clean up their area and learn how to do chores around the house. The shaving kit gives the student the opportunity to pretend they are cutting and shaving hair. This brings in math because you have to charge for the hair cuts. How much do you want cut off, this brings in measurement. Help them learn to hold a conversation with each other.
