My Students

My students are lively and curious four year olds who are mostly from military and low-income families. They come to PreK eager to learn by exploring and participating in hands on activities.

For my students, PreK is their first experience in school.

In PreK it is extremely important to build foundational skills that my students will carry on for the rest of their educational career. My students love to listen to stories, play, explore, and be engaged in hands-on activities.

My Project

PreK students take great pleasure in listening to stories; a new listening center with working headphones and a CD player will allow my students to listen to stories, such as Five Little Monkeys and The Three Billy Goats Gruff, As a workstation, it will give the students a sense of independence and nurture their love of reading. A listening center will provide opportunities for necessary repetition and at the same time learning independent skills.

A listening center with working headphones and a CD player will engage my children to increase their love of books and stories.

It will foster a love of reading that we work so hard to instill at a young age to help ensure success in school!

The more the students listen to their favorite books being read, the greater the likelihood they will learn about print and book awareness, such as, tracking left to right, and new vocabulary words.
