My Students

I teach Pre-k at a Title 1 school in Norfolk Virginia, My kids are from the lowest level of poverty. They all receive free breakfast, and lunch everyday. There are days that they are provided with a fresh snack. Many of the students also receive what is called a weekend backpack, to help to make sure that they eat over the weekend.

I have some of the best students this year, they have these bright smiling faces ready to learn.

My students are so excited to walk into the room and start our day of learning. We have a long road of learning ahead of us this year. Not only how to write their names and other letters. The letter sounds, counting to 100 etc.

These students are exposed to many situations that children their age should not have heard of or watched on television. They need to learn how to say sorry to each other and listen when others speak. To know that they are safe and be ready and open to learn.

My Project

My project is about adding imagination with dramatic play items,dress up cloths help the students to see themselves doing and being more in life. Math and STEAM resources in the room with the drying rack do help keep the painting area neat and works of art from sticking together, then no ones master piece is ruined.

The 3-D Magnetic Builders are for creating even more buildings, ships and rockets that the students can come up, trying to understand how they stick together is always a fun discussion to have with the students.

They have some amazing ideas about how they work.

We will be using the pom poms for several different areas during the year. sorting by color, size and in different mixed media art.
