Hello Friends, I'd like to share a little about the beautiful faces and bright souls I have the privilege to spend my days with. Every weekday morning I am greeted by 20 children who range from 3-5 years old. Our class mission is to cultivate the characteristics of great adventurers, discoverers, scientists, peacemakers, and so much more. I have 9 girls and 11 boys all energetic and ready to play to learn. We work on early literacy skills, concrete mathematics, social emotional and adaptive skills, gross and fine motor skills, as well as science, social studies, and the arts. Public preschool is comprised of a wide spectrum of abilities because we service, first, children who are considered at risk. In our classroom there are students who have learning delays, social delays, health concerns, and children who are on the autism spectrum. Every experience we have in preschool is active and hands on to make the content meaningful for children which is why we are asking for help. As you can imagine providing these experiences requires many materials.
In preschool, we put a big emphasis on hands-on learning in every environment. Right now we have 1 piece of playground equipment for our kids to explore on. We would like to make our playground area a place of wonder to encourage children’s natural curiosity to learn.
Our plan is to make our playground area into more of an outdoor classroom we are able to do this by utilizing parent talents and DIY style with donated materials.
The waterfall table will be an absolute hit with the class, and we can use it to teach many things like force of motion, sink and float, water cycle, and much more.
