My students need crayon makers for learning a Spanish Unit on Colors (Primary and Secondary Colors) by melting and mixing used crayons to make new ones.
Students in our school come from varied background experiences. Our school is a pre-k academy that hosts all the early childhood students from our district. Our enrollment accounts currently for three hundred and eighty-six students from which three hundred and seventeen receive free lunch. From the student population, 68.91% are African American, 26.17 percent are Latinos or Hispanics, 2.33 percent of two or more races, 1.81% are White, .52% are American Indian or Alaska Natives and .26% Asian.
We are thriving to have a bi-literate and pluri-cultural awareness alongside with the General Education, ESL and STEM programs.
Our school hosts the Bilingual Programs (One and Two way Dual Language), English as a Second Language as well General Education. All students benefit from our Spanish LOTE (Languages other than English) program which includes fifty minutes minutes of Spanish instruction on a weekly basis.
The Montessori Shape Work book will grant me with ideas based on the Montessori method of teaching shapes, while the Montessori: Number Work will aide me with innovated ideas to teach numbers.
For teaching colors, the Crayola Melt 'N Mold Factory, Expansion Packs and Bundle will facilitate the creation of crayon making stations for my pre-k students to mix colors and witness how secondary colors come to exist.
Students will also learn to reuse materials such as crayons and save some dollars on the school budget.
My students crave learning that is maneuvered by their senses and the Montessori method to teach them is crucial for early childhood students.
