My Students

I am a 3rd year teacher at an urban school district where students receive free breakfast and lunch. I teach half-day preschool with a total of 24 students (12 in the morning and 12 in the afternoon). The school in which I teach is an inclusive program with students who are typically developing and students with special needs. Students range in a variety of ages from 3 to 5 years and different development levels. I hope to enrich my classroom with learning opportunities to reach all learning styles. Please help me show my students how much learning can occur when they are having fun!

My Project

The project I would like funded is an all-purpose mobile teaching easel to promote hands-on learning. I plan to use this easel to demonstrate drawing, writing, and mathematic concepts. I can imagine us using this easel to graph our favorite colors, our hair color, our eye color, etc., to demonstrate counting with 1:1 correspondence, what has more/less and holding discussions between our classroom family. I would love to use the easel to incorporate Handwriting Without Tears by modeling how to write letters, draw shapes and even draw Mat Man! I can't wait to demonstrate how to write letters on the ease together as a class during our post office theme and writing thank you notes to classroom volunteers! Please help my classroom ideas become reality! Thank you for supporting my classroom! :)
