My Students

When I think of Pre-K, I think of a room filled with bright colors, beautiful posters, shapes, a large comfy rug, and of course, lots of toys! Pre-K is such a memorable year of childhood that is filled with memories that last for a lifetime.

My students are an eager bunch of four year-olds, that are so excited to learn each day.

Their wonderful experiences in school so far, bring smiles and joy to their faces each morning. Watching them grow and seeing them excited to learn each day, truly makes my job as a teacher so rewarding.

My Project

My classroom is a high energy room that always has tons of motion, but our centers can use a little bit of a makeover. Our dramatic play center is need of small manipulatives for my students to use during play time. While in dramatic play, students can transform the center into whatever they imagine: a supermarket, a zoo, a movie theater, a post office or as simple as a house. Choosing small items such as bears, and playing cards, and little books to draw in, will allow my students to walk into this center and let it become whatever they dream of.

This project will make a difference for my students because it will encourage imagination and play.

The most important way students learn at the age of four, is through play; which is why this project is so important. Having these small toy items will help expand their imagination and allow them to express themselves freely. I know school will become a memorable experience for them if they can have fun while learning at the same time.
