My Students

My students’ worlds have been turned upside down due to the COVID19 pandemic. Our last regular school day was Friday, March 13. We left with our regular goodbyes, borrowing books from our class library and big smiles. Our the weekend, the decision to close NYC school was made- an abrupt closure. We didn’t get to explain anything to the students.

Now, almost 2 months later, we know we are closed for the rest of the year and I am trying to figure out how to best implement distance learning to meet the needs of my students and their families.

Most of my students come from low-income families and immigrant families. This creates an added challenge. They do not have access to supplies and academic materials to continue learning at home. Many of the parents are overwhelmed while trying to keep their children safe. They are stressing and they do not understand that we learn through play.

My Project

Our school closure, due to the coronavirus pandemic, has created the challenge of trying to figure out how to promote this play-based learning in a way that is accessible to my students and their families. Since the children are at home, many parents are allowing their children to have a lot of screen time and more academic written work, which may not be age-appropriate. Many of the parents are overwhelmed while trying to keep their children safe. They are stressing and they do not understand that we learn through play.

I want to provide my students with educational materials such as a math board game, building blocks, and a memory game in order to let them learn through play to while at home to enhance their distance learning experience!

I want to give each student a memory game which will promote concentration, appropriate academic learning, and fine motor skills. Research shows that preschoolers learn best through hands-on activities and play! The children need to be creative, they need to build at home. Many children do not have blocks at home. The math board game will help develop addition and subtraction skills while teaching social skills.
