I teach in a Head Start program. We keep the children in the same room for the 2 years they are with us. This gives us the opportunity to really get to know them and their families Even though they all live in poverty, my children deserve a quality education with caring teachers and a well stocked classroom.
They love to come to school.
The older children help the younger children and we all learn together. I have been teaching there for many years and I believe our program is a very valuable part of our community.
I chose toy animals from the zoo, the jungle, the farm, the ocean, the forest, pets and endangered animals. My children can use their imagination to play with the animals, while I help them learn new vocabulary words. We can practice sorting and classifying and counting with them. Hopefully, they will ask to learn more about the animals they are not familiar with.
I searched the catalogs for realistic animals.
When we learn about nature, I believe it should be accurate information. Part of animal science is their habitat. The wide variety of animals I picked will help me to explain what each animal needs in their habitat to survive. Thank you for considering my project.
