My PreK classroom is comprised of students ages 3-5 years old. All of my students have varying special needs. Several students are English Language Learners. These students come from Latin American countries. Most of the students have communication needs. Everyone in my classroom has strengths and uniqueness! We have the incredible opportunity to learn new things together and learn from each other.
Many of my students have a difficult time staying on task and transitioning from one activity to another.
I promote social skills and positive behavior management throughout our day. We celebrate the success of classmates, no matter how big or small. Our school is located within a low-income housing neighborhood. Half of my class is eligible for the free or reduced lunch program. Three students live in multi-generational households.
My students love Biology! They love anything that moves and grows! We are always on the lookout for new bugs and caterpillars. We are proud of our new classroom fish and plants. Students love to harvest our vegetables and smell the herbs. I am constantly on the lookout for new ways to motivate students in my very busy PreK classroom.
My PreK students with special needs love books but many of the books in my classroom are not on the preschool level. They were donated to my classroom and I am thankful for them. However, most are not the kind of books to read together or plan a lesson around.
Predictable Textbooks help students learn the pattern of reading and encourage choral reading.
My students say they "can't read." However, these books will allow them to learn books! They will be able to read them on their own very quickly. Predictable Textbooks give students with communication difficulties a low-stress activity to practice their speech. Life cycle books will help me teach the processes around us. Many of my students need real-life experiences.
