My Students

I have recently been assigned a new Prekindergarten classroom targeting 21 low-income students who arrive to school each day ready to read, write and, work on math activities as well as learning through playing in the pretend and learn center. At such an early age, my students will benefit from preschool despite being at-risk due to their social economic status.

From the youngest three year old to the oldest four year old, our class has already established a safe and welcoming classroom environment where each student will develop the joy of learning.

My Project

Preschool provides a solid foundation for a successful future in school. It is a time for the student to explore, build, and make pretend to help the child understand the world we live in. Therefore, the Sinuo Boy's Dress Up Costumes Set, Role Play Set 12-pcs Dress Up Trunk Pirate, Chef, Construction Worker, Policeman Costume will be used as instructional tool when we study about our Community helpers. The students learn the importance of each member of our community. In addition to making pretend the student is a community helper by playing dress up, they will use the Trade Quest Memo Size 6'' x 9'' Clipboards to write the vocabulary words learned in each unit. In my previous teaching experience, the students have expressed feeling proud when they have a clipboard and write around the room. Lastly but not least, science is also a major component of the prekindergarten curriculum so with the Insect Lore Life Cycle Figurines Set, the student will explore how insects are born and how the cycle repeats itself.
