My students need hands-on math and literacy materials to create engaging learning experiences.
Our school serves a dynamic and diverse group of students from pre-kindergarten up to fifth grade. My classroom is a four-year-old kindergarten class filled with compassionate, lovable, enthusiastic little learners.
All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch each day, meaning, they live in a high poverty area of our city.
My students often come to school carrying the weight of various traumas they have experienced in their short lives. School is a safe-haven for many of my pre-k students.
Pre-kindergarten is an imperative time in a child's educational life. Please help me to provide a safe, nurturing and engaging environment for my young learners!
My students need a variety of learning materials. With looming budget cuts, I may not have the ability to provide for my students as I have in previous years.
Research shows that young children learn best when they are engaged in a hands-on activity.
Math and literacy are basic introductory skills that my pre-k students need to know. Using things such as games, puzzles, and manipulatives help my students to learn and retain this vital information. Tactile tracing letters, alphabet tracing letters, and magnetic letter builders will help my students with upper and lowercase letter recognition. A class-set of ten frames, giant tracing letters, play-doh counting templates, and shape sorting rods will enhance my students' number sense and mathematical thinking. Materials such as block play people and early skills games will encourage my students to use critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
By providing my students these hands-on learning materials, you are giving them the opportunity to form not only these math and literacy concepts, but also problem-solving and conflict resolution skills. These are the skills that come from working with partners and small groups. These materials will help my students to become independent, smart, engaged young learners!
