My Students

I have the privilege of working with 17 wonderful, energetic, and ambitious 4-year-old students every day. Our school holds one of our district's Pre-K classes available to the families.

In our room, we focus on the learning process by utilizing social-emotional learning, hands-on learning and purposeful play.

We also work on skills to help us develop social and emotional skills through purposeful play, conflict resolution, and communication.

We will work on writing our own names and identifying letters, numbers, counting, and shapes within our literacy and math approach. Lastly, we will be able to be creative by expressing our own ideas and engaging in dramatic play.

My Project

Our students will benefit from the gift of music and movement in many ways. Our young students love the combination of music, movement, dance and rhythm. The blending of these encourages students to enjoy the sounds and completely express themselves.

Music and movement also provide a great many advantages to their social, mental and physical development.

The triangle, brass cymbals, hand tom-toms and maracas will help enhance young students' social interactions and language growth through music.

The best part of receiving these music and movement materials will be the joy and excitement on their young faces. We need a privacy cube, butcher paper and musical instruments.
