My Project

My students in my classroom are thirty-eight energetic three, four, and five year olds who are eager to learn. I also work with special education students from other preschool classrooms. My students come from many different family backgrounds, abilities, and are each unique in their own way. They are encountering their very first school experience which will set the foundation for the rest of their educational career. What they do now affects the rest of their lives.

The primary mode of learning for my students is play.

Students participate in "work time" each day when they are able to play in different centers. They are able to choose from areas such as blocks, dramatic play, reading, sensory, writing, art, music, and more. Play is where they learn most of their early math and literacy skills, as well as valuable social skills.

My preschoolers love to interact with their friends and learn new things. They are excited about the different center areas and each new thing I bring into our classroom. The materials from this project will be used in my centers for student-directed learning. As students chose an area that interests them, adults will sit with them and facilitate learning.

With the materials from this project, students will be able to learn about various things across the curricular areas. Materials from this project will be used in our dramatic play center, art center, music center, math center, and games and toys center.
