My Students

My preschool classroom is part of the Great Start Readiness Program. This is a state-funded grant program. I have 16 diverse students in my classroom each year. My students are all at-risk students either due to low-income or other factors such as being English Language Learners or having Speech and Language delays. There are many different ethnicities within my student population as well. My goal is to get each and every one of my students ready for Kindergarten each year.

My Project

My classroom has used up the majority of all our basic school supplies that we use on a daily basis. My students need markers to help our little hands to write. We need a gallon of glue to refill our small bottles that we use. We need glue sticks to help glue paper. We need some new scissors to replace our old dull ones that have been well loved. My classroom needs dry erase markers to help me write daily messages on the board to the class, as well as to teach my kiddos letter, number, and shape formations. We need Sharpies to help label materials and for lesson preparation. My classroom needs staples, copy paper, and Post-its that are used on a regular basis as well. These basic school supplies are the foundation for our classroom activities and overall functioning. These small items add up to be big in our preschool world!
