My classroom is composed of 18 students from Virginia. We are a Title-One school which means my students come from low-income families that need help to bridge the gap between them and their peers. Most of my students also have English as a second language since our school serves the local military base.
My classroom is designed to help four-year-old learners gain an understanding of their world through joyful, developmentally-appropriate experiences.
Literacy instruction focuses on meaningful and authentic activities in oral language, reading, and writing. mathematics concepts are taught through questioning, problem solving, persistence, and communication. Units of study are based on science and social studies concepts that provide students the chance to understand themselves, friends, families, communities, and the larger world in which they live. Students have daily art, music, and physical activities to develop the whole child!
The environment is an important part of our classroom and is considered the third teacher. Making a seamless transition from one space to the next will assist in decreasing anxiety, distractions, and increase learning.
New carpets and flat sheets to be transformed into curtains and covers with have a immense impact in providing new life and flow for the classroom environment.
Students with and without sensory needs will be able to engage in activities with limited distractions and comfort throughout the room. The addition of the calming purple color in the room will ensure that students are not over-stimulated as we participate in classroom family activities.
