My preschool classroom is part of the Great Start Readiness Program. This is a state-funded grant program. I have 16 diverse students in my classroom each year. My students are all at-risk students, either due to low-income or other factors such as being English Language Learners or having Speech and Language delays. There are many different ethnicities within my student population as well. My goal is to get each and every one of my students ready for kindergarten each year.
Please help me give my students some quiet activities that they can do at rest time. The majority of my students do not sleep anymore at this time of year during rest time. They are getting very bored with books and puzzles during rest time. These materials will help with students fine motor skills as well as their writing grasp. These are very important skills to prepare them for Kindergarten. The magnet learners help students to make patterns and the extra shape cards will help students to learn about attributes of shapes. The Imagination Builders and Fish Connectors help students work on their fine motor skills as they connect small pieces together. Thank you for helping my students with their Kindergarten Readiness Skills!
