My preschool classes consist of two rooms of fantastic, fun-loving and curious 4 yr. olds that yearn to learn new and exciting concepts each day they enter the classroom. They are always asking questions that give me as a teacher the inspiration to find new and different ways to continue the love of learning for each and every one of them.
My students enjoy playing games within the classroom where they review skills introduced and learn to interact with peers.
The students are always excited to play a game with a group of friends or maybe just an adult. The social skills that are developed during the playing of games will assist in their future social/emotional growth.
The preschool students are just beginning to learn the concept of sharing the classroom, the toys, the books and their friends with other students within the classroom. This is such a difficult concept, yet it is something that you just can't just wave a magic wand around and it is all better...children have feelings and we must remember this!
The reason for this project is to assist the little ones in a direction in which they have an understanding that sharing of a game such as Hi Ho Cherry-O, Chutes and Ladders and CandyLand, and respecting each other's turn in the game might give them a glimmer of what SHARING is all about.
The students will be watching the adults playing along with them, that there are rules to the game and yes, we are following the directions. By the end of the year the students will play the game with no adult needed to give them directions!
