My Students

I work with an incredible group of diverse kindergarten students. Most of the families are low income families and educational materials are hard to come by.

Early childhood grades have always been something that is very near and dear to my heart.

There are so many different cultures and personalities, but the one thing that my students all have in common is that they all love to learn and work together as a classroom community. They each have a lot to offer and share.

My Project

A mesh net, a shoe rack hanger, set of hooks and a piggy bank will be a great addition to our dramatic play area. Financial literacy really starts at a young age. With these mesh net, I plan to build a little banking area in our dramatic play. Using the shoe rack hanger, I will show my students how to sort bills, coins and other "customer information". The piggy bank will be the center piece of our play bank. Students in pre-kindergarten generally learn through play. By building a bank within our dramatic play area, it will allow my students to start comprehending how adults utilize money in their everyday life.

One of the most wonderful aspects of Pre-K is the idea of starting small.

This is the age group where we can introduce life long skills and the ability to recognize important emotions that will help enable them to become contributing citizens in the future.
