My class is a center based classroom. I believe students benefit from hands on learning. The students in my class are always moving around from activity to activity. It is a safe environment where students are encourage to explore.
I have a group of 22 energetic kindergarten students.
Each of these students learn in a different way and at a different pace. These students benefit from hands on instruction as well as whole group instruction. My school is located in an urban district and is very diverse. The district I teach in is considered a magnet school district. The magnet system was implemented to ensure racial balance in each one of its schools, allowing for diversity. Additionally, the district provides “parental choice,” meaning parents and students can choose which magnet theme (e.g. science, the arts, technology) they are most interested in and apply for enrollment in the school that specializes in that theme.
I will use the bean bag chairs to create a cozy reading corner. A quiet place for students to choose a book and read quietly. I will use the Dr. Seuss books for individual reading time. These books are developmentally appropriate for kindergarten students. Dr. Seuss books are great for teaching rhyming and word families. I will use the board games to teach the students to play fairly and interact with each other. Students benefit from hands on learning and personal interaction.
The donations to this project will improve my classroom by providing many hands on materials, developmentally appropriate books, a place for student to store their art work and a place for them to relax and read.
It will change my students' lives for the better by providing them with additional materials that will make learning fun.Read More
