My Students

My students come from a title one district, it is in the lower Yakima Valley which resided on the Yakama reservation. My students come from all walks of life and are eager to build their education surrounding by their community. My student are Pre- K ages 3-4. 100% of my students qualify for free and reduced priced lunch, which means most of our families are considered low income status. The majority of our student’s parents work long hours in agriculture and labor industries, which leaves little time for personal social skills in real life situations such as getting dressed, cooking, self-help skills and imaginary play.

I strive to make my classroom a safe environment by accommodating all students' social and academic needs.

My students are very eager to learn self help skills and becoming sufficient young adults .

My Project

These materials will be so beneficial for my students as well as their creativity. As Loris Malaguzzi said, " Our task, regarding creativity is to help children climb their own mountains, as high as possible; no one can do more. I want students to explore real life scenario by taking care of babies as well as the playing dress up . My students will be able to use dress up clothing to explore professions, which I hope will turn into future goals. I would like my students to explore new scenery with the dramatic play animal set. Students can us their imagination a pretend they are in different atmospheres. With the new materials I hope it will enhance their imagination and learn new life skills.
