My Students

My students all come from a low income house hold and environment. Students in my class don't often get the opportunity to enjoy nice things or explore what middle class families get to experience. Having students like this allows for teachable moments in the smallest places. They value little things and are always thankful.

The children here are so eager to learn and we are not always able to provide materials needed for these teachable moments.

I want them to have the chance to engage in the same opportunities as other children who are not less fortunate. They are loveable children who are enthused about learning.

My Project

The learning materials that I have chosen will implement the success rate of our children understanding real world experiences. The multicultural feel real babies will allow our children to understand how babies are taken care of. Our children will be able to grasp the concepts of nurturing and responsibilities of what their care takers do.

Pipe builders will increase our children's ability to explore a potential career engagement for real world experiences.

These objects will also allow our children to develop gross motor skills through play. We enjoy getting to learn about new careers but often are unable to allow the children to have the hands on experience of what the career may entail.

Our children will benefit from all the materials listed however, having them learn through experience and play is our biggest goal. Coming up with creative ways to bring activities to life is something we strive for. The float and find alphabet brings another level to learning the alphabet. There are several activities this one item can be manipulated. It encourages our students to look outside the box while learning and develop a love for education.
