Every morning, we gather on the rug and sing, "Welcome to school today, we have come to learn and play." In preschool, we learn and we play. We play to learn and during playtime, we are learning.
I have 15 wonderful children in my class this year.
My students attend an inner city school and are provided free breakfast and lunch daily. Most of them come from low income households and attend before school and after school care for free or at little cost. Our school is unable to purchase any materials needed for my classroom due to tremendous budget cuts.
In the fall, I will be given $30 to spend on school supplies for the year. As you can imagine that amount of money can not buy much for my classroom.
I have a light table in the classroom but I do not have many light table translucent materials that I am able to place on the table for my students to explore. Having the light table sensory materials would give my students the opportunity explore light and color hands on. The light table slides would give children a close-up view of different animal characteristics that children can explore. The light table manipulative center consists of different material that would help students not only explore properties of color and light but build math and language skills at the same time. I want my student show more interest in the light table and I am confident that they will once they have these wonderful materials to explore. Having these materials will give me the opportunity to change them out frequently and get my students excited about the light table again. I would like to thank you in advance for you support!
