My Students

Relationships are essential to teaching pre-school. The social-emotional learning that takes place within these four walls is impossible to accomplish during this time of virtual learning. My job has been to try to create connections by hosting several zoom calls, calling parents for weekly welfare checks, publishing stories on my classtag (which can be accessed by phone as well as on computers) and attempting to connect whenever possible.

Even with all the work I'm doing to remain connected, it's not enough to provide my students and their families with what they truly need.

Several of the parents have been laid-off, furloughed, or been forced to quit jobs to ensure their children are taken care of while we are unable to attend school. This is leading to financial trouble which is translating to food insecurity, housing trouble, and stress on families.

My Project

These materials will ensure that students have everything that they need to accomplish something daily for their brain, body, creativity, home and family, which is the goal of our weekly distance learning plans. Unfortunately, many of my students do not have access to materials they need to do these things fully.

Open-ended materials create learning opportunities that are not easily mastered and can occupy children's minds and bodies for hours on end, allowing them to take a break from screens, worksheets, and structured activities and do what little kids truly need to do to learn -- PLAY!

Paper, glue, scissors, paint, Play-Doh, puzzles and a few snacks along the way will provide my students and their families everything they need to be able to complete some of the work that is typically done in preschools in their home without having to choose between groceries or creatives supplies for their little learners.
