Preparing Early Learners with a Solid Foundation

My students need a story time rug. Our classroom was cleared out and we have very limited materials. Please help us have a comfortable place to have group discussions.

My Students

Who doesn't remember how fun circle time was? This is where many got our foundation for what we came to know. I want my students to feel like they have a fun engaging environment and not sit on the bare floor! We can make this happen and make sure that our early learners have a solid foundation!

I will be teaching a group of 6-8 students in a PPCD classroom.

My school is a tier one school with ninety nine percent of our students coming from low-income households. PPCD focuses on building the appropriate skills for special needs preschool students to transition to kindergarten and mainstream successfully.

My Project

I will be able to do everything! Different lessons can be held as well as conducting different group activities. I would also be able to incorporate our mat in our lessons by having them participate with their sitting area as their visual supports! One of the things I want my students to feel everyday is as if they've walked in to a welcoming home. I want everyone to feel that every item and every minute in our classroom will make a difference.

My students will actually have structured sections within our classroom!

I will be able to teach transitioning methods and really get a solid foundation for each student. I'm wanting them to be provided with the best education by making sure we have essential materials in our classroom.
