I teach at a Head Start program in South Chicago in the three to five year old classroom. Most of the students come from low-income families. Many of our students are dual language learners. Often times they come into the classroom shy and not so sure of themselves as an 3 year old. When they transition to kindergarten their confindence is through the roof.
It brings me great joy to see them so excited to accomplish something that they could not do when they first arrived in the classroom.
To see them succeed and develop confindence in themselves brings a smile to my face. My students always come to school with a smile on their faces and ready to learn.
My students need a new shelf for the Science Area. The shelf will allow for more space and appeal the students to this area. The Earth and Environment library will provide children with understanding of the natural world and they will develop print concepts. The Mirror Cubes will provide children with endless fun with mirror play.
It will be really great to have these new additions to the Science Area, the children will be ecstatic.
Our class also needs new discovery kits.The children will be able to explore using tools. The tools in these discovery kits will allow the children to develop and build on their scientific inquiry skills.
