My Students

"Children are not passive absorbers of knowledge; rather, they are active constructors of concepts." ~Bronson and Merryman

I teach twenty, four and five-year-olds.

They are very active, curious, and always eager to see what the day will bring. I also have mainstreamed special education children in my class. Eighty percent of the students at our Title I school qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Our school is located in a high poverty area and we have very few resources. Our school budget was cut again this year.

My Project

Our students need a way to organize their learning materials. By incorporating the learning standard of sorting, our students will be able to use these bamboo trays & wooden bowls to sort a variety of materials. Our children also need art materials such as watercolors and multicultural crayons. and bowls to put these items in. Our classroom is a Reggio inspired space, so the wood textures will add to the natural feel of the room. We also make sure to incorporate art and hands-on opportunities into our lessons so these items will help make that goal possible. Most boxes of crayons only have brown and peach colors. The multicultural set has an array of skin tones perfect for children to add that extra detail to their art. We will also be doing a couple teaching tolerance lessons about skin color. These crayons will be the perfect additional for those lessons. The wooden tea sets will be used for a practical life center. We incorporate Montesori teaching aspects into our classroom so these tea sets will be perfect for teaching children how to set a table and perform a formal social gathering.
