My Students

My students are awesome preschoolers with some special needs. They are mostly on the autism spectrum, and so while they are working on learning pre-K skills, it helps them to have some supports to make it easier on their busy bodies.

My kids work so hard all day to meet their goals.

They are sweet and fun and love coming to school to learn and play with all their friends. They love to sing and dance at circle time, and they really enjoy listening to stories. They make some beautiful artwork, too!

My Project

One of the most important components of preschool programs is exposing students to books -- reading aloud to students frequently, giving them ample time to look at books independently and read to themselves, and having words readily available and used in the classroom. One of the best ways to do this is having an extensive classroom library to pull books from, containing books that align with classroom curriculum, as well as those that relate to areas in which students show interest. When students show a desire to learn about something, taking that desire and building on it with books that are available in the classroom lets students not only learn more about the content, but learn about how to research and discover more about things themselves, and also instills a love of reading. There is a huge amount of worthwhile children's literature in existence, and new children's books become available every day. It is critical for teachers to both expand their libraries, and update them every few years, which can both include acquiring new books and taking some old books out of rotation.

I am updating my curriculum this year, and so I need to update my library as well!

I am asking for books about transportation (Duck in a Truck, Beep Beep Vroom Vroom, etc), pumpkins, shapes, colors, and numbers. This way, I will be able to prepare new read aloud activities, and give my students access to more information about each topic.
