Most of my Pre-K and Kindergarten students have never been enrolled in school before. They have enjoyed the new opportunities in school so far, along with making new friends and new experiences. They love hands on activities and making connections between each other and prior knowledge.
My students are looking for experiences to learn; the minute they realize they have learned something new, they have the biggest smile on their face.
I am looking for opportunities to provide those chances for these students.
The first year in school can set the stage for student success. I am looking for supplies and materials that create an engaging classroom, hands-on experiences, and variety of ways to learn in all content areas. In order to create those opportunities I need tactile letters, fine motor materials, building objects, and arts and crafts. I will use whiteboards for students to demonstrate their understanding in mathematics and practice handwriting. Pencil grips and fine motor practice with tweezers will help students strengthen handwriting by assisting how to hold a pencil. Building of sentences box gives students a hands-on way of learning how to create a sentence. Magnetic letters will help build letter recognition and forming words.
I am a first year teacher that had minimal time and money to create the classroom environment I want to provide my students.
I know these materials will allow my students to expand their creativity and knowledge. It will give them chances to connect to the information and build a solid foundation of learning. I hope to give them the best experience and watch them grow!
