My Students

My classroom is a full day program with a half day PreK curriculum. We meet the needs of Colorado Preschool Program, Special needs, and tuition children.

Our core beliefs and values are:

We believe in facilitating learning through play, building relationships, family partnerships, nurturing every child, maintaining safe learning environments, developing character skills, honoring the culture, languages and values of our families, being reflective of the communities in which we live.

My Project

My Students are in need of a new dollhouse and storytelling puppets. Also, we would like to ask for pattern block builders. I am requesting some inexpensive learning tools. To most people they look like basic toys. Preschoolers learn from their play. With these tools, my preschoolers will be working on their language and social skills.

All preschoolers love to retell stories they have heard or things they have learned about in their play.

Puppets and visuals through stories give preschoolers an opportunity to hear lots of rhymes and patterns since most of them are English Language Learners. By hearing the stories, students will be exposed to lots of new words that they haven't heard and then retell them in their play.

Playing is learning!
