My students need career and animal costumes to encourage imaginary play and peer interaction!
My students are sweet preschoolers and kindergartners with special needs. They are three to five years old with different disabilities including autism, speech or language impairment, health impairment, orthopedic impairment and intellectual disabilities. My students are from low-income families and all are English language learners. Some have just arrived in the United States from Mexico with parents who do not speak English. Despite the many challenges they face, they come ready each day to work and play with the most positive attitudes.
It has been a true blessing to watch my students learn and grow.
Their determination and eagerness to learn are what fuels me. These young scholars amaze me every single day with their big hearts! A day in our classroom consists of enthusiasm, energy, and excitement. Every accomplishment, big or small, is celebrated!
Imaginary play is a vital component to normal child development. It helps develop social skills and emergent language skills. As an early childhood educator, I will always try my best to provide plenty of opportunities and resources to enrich my students' experience in school. Playtime has such a huge impact on young minds.
There is so much to be learned from play!
My students are preschoolers with disabilities; social skills and language are areas of needs for all my students, especially my students with autism. A career costume set in the classroom would maximize my students’ playtime! They can be anything they want to be from a firefighter to a doctor. They will be able to imitate and pretend to be different occupations they see in their community, on television, and in books. I truly believe in my students and the bright future they all have ahead of them. It is so important to talk about occupation awareness and how school is connected to a successful future.
My students love animals! They enjoy books such as Brown Bear and Old MacDonald Had a Farm. Realistic animal costumes will help my students bring their favorite animals to life through acting out stories and songs. These costumes will be an incredible and valuable addition to our classroom!
