PreK is an amazing time in a child’s life. Everything they learn about the world comes from using their hands and learning language. Young learners need so very many opportunities to engage in problem solving and social interactions. I have the privilege of helping these students become enthusiastic life-long learners. The majority of my students come from low socio-economic backgrounds, many are new to this country and all of them meet federal criteria for being in a public PreK program. We also support the families with parent workshops and activities, community events and home visits.
Students are so proud of the things they create and we are fortunate to have great things available as learning tools on the internet. However, printing out our creations is very expensive and not in the school budget. I would love to be able to allow students and families to display some of the work they are so proud of. Additionally, as a teacher there are some very good resources and games available for use in the classroom (such as TPT and others. Please help me get lots of options in front of my students as they explore hands-on learning!
