I teach 4K! These students are the youngest and most eager learners of our school! They enter my classroom with great anticipation each day, hoping to get a first-hand look at what our day has in store! They have an amazing zest for learning and for exploring new and innovative activities every day! This not only makes my heart smile but also drives me to keep on keeping on this crazy path called teaching.
I use a thematic approach to teaching my students and I create learning centers based on early childhood readiness skills.
My students learn primarily through play and hands-on activities. Our room is never quiet because I encourage the kids to use their language during their work and play.
As a teacher of four-year-old kindergartens, I am always looking for new ways to help my young learners learn basic readiness skills such as alphabet recognition, pre-writing skills, and math concepts.
By adding some "Boogie Boards" to my writing center, I feel the students will be motivated to practice readiness skills while using the latest in writing surfaces in the classroom!
These boards are durable for my four-year-old students to use and can be used for pre-writing skills, printing practice, and drawing, all of which is for some children a challenging task when they first come to school.
The variety of classroom games would offer yet another opportunity for my students to have classroom success. When used in conjunction with the traditional curriculum, games for the classroom keep children engaged in the learning process. Through games, children also learn a variety of useful skills, including critical thinking, teamwork, and good sportsmanship.
