My Students

Our school is a very ethnically diverse school located in Brooklyn. It is a Pre-K center, which opened up in September of 2015. We had students from Turkey, Russia, China, Jamaica, Mexico, Pakistan, Puerto Rico and many other parts of the world. My students were completely engaged in many activities designed based on the curriculum, however, I would often say "If I had ______, it would be so much better for them". For this years class, I would like for them to have it all!

My Project

This year, I would like to have a prize box to help motivate my students to make the right choices in our classroom. We all love rewards, whether we are children, or adults. We all look for incentives, whether its verbal, or tactile. I believe once my students get to choose a prize for doing making the right choices, it would encourage them to keep it up!

My kids would also benefit from a wiggle seat (sometimes, even adults want to wiggle!) and sensory toys to help with stress, focus, and attention.

My students will be able to independently go into a bin with these fidget toys and take one to use during circle time, story time, or even center time.
