We have a diverse group of Pre-K students who are ready and excited to learn! With your support they can grow, learn, and spread their excitement for education into their future academic career. Pre-K is a special place for children to learn how to get along with others while building self confidence and self esteem. They learn how to socialize with others, manage disagreements, and build key communication skills needed in the future.
We are curious and active learners who love to make new discoveries by exploring our surroundings.
It's hard for a four year old to sit and listen for long periods of time. That's why we learn through play! Our classroom materials are essential to our learning process. The materials we play with allow us to role play, reenact what we have learned, illustrate, create, build, rebuild, count, and manipulate water/sand flow. Sometimes we don't understand the purpose of an object so we play around and test our theories. Sometimes we'll think some more and try out a new ways to use our materials. We make observations and discuss what we notice. Through our discussions we draw conclusions that help us to make sense of the world.
I have requested a color printer and toner to print our newsletter to keep the parents informed and inspire our students. It is important to document a project that a child or group of children are working on through color photos, typed children's dialogue, and a written reflection. This documentation is meant to inform others and gain support, feedback, and ideas from others. In an early childhood setting, this type of communication allows everyone access, including those who may not read yet or may not read English. Photos sequencing a project would allow fellow pre-k students to "read" about the project. This may inspire them to contribute ideas to the child/group, join the project, or begin a project of their own. Additionally, teachers can reflectively read the photo documentation in order to determine the children's real interests and goals, further support the child in achieving their goals, and to find ways to link the Common Core goals with the child's interest/projects. Parents would also be able to see what the children are learning, how deep their thinking can be, and what their interests are.
This color printer will document what children are doing on a daily basis in color, and will also keep parents informed about what's going on in the classroom.
Creating visual documentation allows everyone to see the process of a project, allows thinking to be visible, presents problems to be solved, and may even inspire others.
