Imagine 24 twinkling stars illuminating the night! That is what you will see in my prekindergarten classroom. You will find a room of vibrant boys and girls ready to take on the tasks for the day. Nothing stops them from wanting to learn and participate in the day's activities.
Each one of my students possesses their own special talents and interests that motivates them to be productive in our classroom.
My class is located in a public school in the heart of an urban school district. There are a maximum of 24 students in my class. For many of my students, this is their first school experience. Each student must qualify for enrollment in my class by being low-income, homeless or other factors that can inhibit a great start to their educational journey. The majority of the class qualifies under low socio-economic status. Because of this, supplies are limited. But my twinkling stars are persistent and work hard each day to do their best!
The "Sunny Day Carpet" has been an important piece in my room for years; however, time brings about wear and tear. In a class of 24 students, a carpet can play a pivotal role in daily routines. It has not only been a great source for classroom management but works wonderfully for safely incorporating music and movement.
When it comes to teaching prekindergarten, having the right seating arrangement can make a successful day.
The "Sunny Day Carpet" has 26 alphabet squares which are perfect for allowing students to find a comfortable place to sit during whole group instruction. My students love having a special spot on the carpet to call their own. Not only that, the alphabet, colors, and numbers on the carpet can be used for learning activities throughout the day with large or small groups.
Having the "Sunny Day Carpet" will allow me to continue daily routines that have been incorporated since the beginning of the year. This is integral for prekindergarten students who rely on routine to build confidence. Needless to say, the "Sunny Day Carpet" would be a tremendous help.
