My Students

I teach all day Pre-K at a public school in small town Oklahoma. PreK is the first time most of my children have been in a classroom, they are so excited, full of energy and eager to learn!

The children really enjoy role playing and would get a lot of benefit having a new kitchen center to play with.

My four and five year olds enter the classroom ready to learn, discover, and explore. A new kitchen center will give them the perfect place to do so!

My Project

The children in my classroom love to learn! And I love to watch my students' social and emotional skills grow as they play. The kitchen center we now have is very old and falling apart. Getting a new kitchen center will help encourage their dramatic play which is a very vital part of their early childhood learning experience.

The kitchen center is used daily in my classroom, it helps develop social skills such as working & playing well with others.

Learning how to interact with others is a skill students need to learn. Dramatic play is a very vital part of their early childhood learning experience.
