My Students

I teach full day, public preschool in the city of Chicago! All of my students are four and five years old. My twenty learners are so eager to discover new things. 15 out of 20 of my students are English Language Learners, and we have 11 languages spoken in my classroom alone!

My students love to build their language and communication skills through creative, play-based activities, art, drama, and storytelling.

They are growing so much in their problem-solving and creativity!

My Project

My preschoolers need ample opportunity to develop their social-emotional, creative thinking, and dramatic play skills. When they play, talk, and build together, they are practicing problem-solving, communication, and collaboration with one another.

I am looking to add a dollhouse to my classroom to build my students social, language, and communication skills.

I can't wait to hear the stories they will create! This project will also help my students with literacy, as they love to retell their favorite storybooks!

This amazing set that I have chosen was hand-picked by my learners, they are so excited for this addition to our classroom!
