My Students

We are a Pre-Kindergarten classroom at a Title I magnet school. My 20 four-year-old students are curious, eager and energetic young learners.

The students bring to the classroom many varied life experiences from their homes and the surrounding community.

We embrace our general, ELL and exceptional education children in the classroom and our campus is located within an economically and culturally diverse neighborhood. My students love learning and with a variety of resources I can help them find success, instill confidence, and guide them farther than even they ever thought possible.

My Project

The social-emotional well-being of students is of utmost importance to their academic progress and ability to function in every day life.

The books and materials requested in this project will be used to support our current social-emotional curriculum in the classroom.

Students will learn to work cooperatively with peer through the use of Board Games. For example, in the game "Count Your Chickens", students work as a team to help gather Mother Hen's chicks that have flown the coop. These games will foster cooperation, sharing, group problem solving and body awareness.

The post-it notes, pens and book, "Kindness Snippit Jar" will be utilized with our classroom Kindness Board. Students "collect" acts of kindness , which we write and post using post-it notes and we share them on our board. At the end of each month, the students get to take home their post-its to share with their families.
