My Students

The majority of my students are experiencing school for the first time. They come to school on the first day and it's overwhelming. They are away from their families for a large portion of the day. My goal is to make them feel comfortable and want to come to school every day.

Having a classroom that is engaging and welcoming is very important to me.

If my classroom is engaging then the children are more apt to learn and have a wonderful time. Making a positive experience for their new adventure in schooling is the key to making a successful student.

I want to give each student parts of the classroom that they can call theirs. Having them feel that they have ownership in the classroom makes all the difference in the world.

My Project

The literacy center is an important part of any early childhood classroom. But who really wants to go to the literacy center when there are blocks and dramatic play to choose from?

Materials, tools, and toys for my literacy center that will engage my young learners and support their development of skills like letter identification and phonological awareness are very important to me.

If the literacy center is filled with fun, hands-on activities they will come!

I am excited to have these tools in my classroom to help my students become successful readers now and in the future with hands on materials.
