I am so excited and feel extremely grateful to be starting my first year as a VPK teacher/director. I love working with preschoolers, and seeing how their eyes light up when I have taught them something new. I have two classes, a morning session and an afternoon session giving me a total of 40 students. Each and every one of them are special and silly in their own unique way. They are so eager every day to learn new things and be a part of fun and exciting activities. Giving them a great first experience to school is one of my biggest goals. When they find out that learning is fun, they are excited to come to school every day. I believe this excitement for learning will create future academic success.
After practicing their literacy skills in the writing center, my students need a cozy area to relax and read in. Our library area has not had very many readers in it lately, when I asked the students why they mentioned there was nowhere for them to read. Visiting the library area and getting exposure to print in books, reading with a buddy, and acting out stories on a flannel board, are vital to achieving Kindergarten readiness skills. For sanitary purposes, we can't have lots of soft and fluffy pillows in our library. These easy to wipe bean bag chairs will provide a clean and cozy area for the children to relax and read after working so hard in our newly acquired writing center.
