My Students

We are a preschool class in Michigan. We serve low-income and at-risk children and their families. We provide them with high-quality health and educational programs. We are an all-day preschool, that is free to our families. We partner with organizations in our community to help connect our families with the support that they may need to become stronger and independent family.

We are a preschool that comes together as one, but with many differences.

We have families that speak English as a second language, and the students are learning English in the classroom from their teachers and peers. We have students with disabilities receiving support through our program.

We are teaching students how to be kind to one another and to be able to express their needs and wants. We are a classroom with big smiles and big hugs.

My Project

We love to listen to stories and be together as a whole group, but it can be a challenge to sit quietly. This project aims to provide each student with his or her own book to hold as we read together. No more fighting or waiting to take a turn. I am asking for a class set of the book, "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" and "The Very Hungry Caterpillar."

Learning to enjoy books is a critical early childhood skill that will better prepare our students to understand early reading skills.

We can develop phonemic awareness, learn the direction of print, identify letters, explore science, math, and social emotional concepts, and learn to work cooperatively during a lesson when we're all together.
