My Students

I am a Pre-k teacher in a Title 1 elementary school. The majority of our students are living at or below the poverty line. For many of the students in my class, English is a second language. Learning through play is the best way for my students to communicate, learn and develop.

My Pre-K students are curious, enthusiastic, and creative; my students are eager to immerse themselves in any kind of challenge.

In this class, we build a community around what we have in common and our shared experiences.

My Project

My students are four and five years old and come to school excited and ready to learn each day. They work hard to learn the skills needed to be successful in Pre-K and beyond. Having a sensory mat along with sand and water play materials will enriched my students learning experience greatly. The materials in these kits will allow each child to work on their physical, cognitive, and social skills as they work in groups. These skills will be learned when each child digs, pours, sifts and sprays. Children will use their imagination and explore while using social skill with the group of children they share tools with and work together to solve problems.
