My Pre-K 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 Pre-K classroom!
Many of my students have communication needs. These storage boxes will provide opportunities for communication and organization in my classroom.
Students will have to request the items stored in each box either verbally, sign language or using a picture card.
Students will then need to prompt the communication partner to open the box. Students will have to make choices and communicate their wants and needs even during playtime.
Items in the boxes will be highly motivating objects, sensory toys and manipulatives.
The room will stay organized because students will have one box at time to investigate. Students will no longer dump out boxes without lids through out the play area. Boxes with lids will limit choices and will increase focus on the items in the box not the process of emptying the contents.
ABC Teaching Tub holder will organize tubs so each child can see all the alphabet letters. Students can then request the letter tub they would like to use.
