My Students

I currently have 19 students in my class. My students are four & five year-olds that are experiencing a school setting for the first time. They are so excited and full of energy and so eager to learn. We learn our letters and their sounds along with center time where we incorporate play to learn social skills as well as enrich the materials being taught. The children need lots of activities to enrich their minds. Watching their faces as they are discovering and learning is priceless!

My Project

The children in my classroom love to learn! This table, as well as the car and food manipulatives will be used in the classroom daily. My students learn letters, sounds, shapes, numbers, social skills etc. The table and supplies will be used in their housekeeping area. Many social skills and everyday skills are taught in this area. These supplies will help with the hands on learning and the activities that we do.

The children in my classroom love to play to learn!

Students get free choice centers where they learn to incorporate social skills such as to work and play well with others. Learning how to interact with others is a skill students need to learn. Dramatic play is a very vital part of their early childhood learning experience.
