My Students

My pre-K students come into our classroom every day looking forward to a new learning opportunity. One of their favorite parts of the day is called small group time. During this time, students work alongside 8 other students and me to develop their kindergarten readiness skills.

I expose them to different types of student-friendly activities that tap into the 7 domains of early childhood development.

These domains are gross motor, fine motor, language, cognitive, social-emotional, adaptive and moral.

I want my students to have a positive view of school and to feel successful in the grades to come. I teach at a Title I school in a large city in Michigan where almost all of my students are living at or below the poverty line. Many of my students had no prior experiences with basic kindergarten readiness skills before entering my classroom. Despite their struggles, my students deserve the best classroom environment, one that allows them to blossom in the previously mentioned areas.

My Project

Healthy snacks are huge parts of the preschool classroom. We even have a time set aside in our schedule for snack time. I am requesting healthy snacks for my students because I know how hard it can be to focus on learning when you are hungry. For this project, I have requested Cheez-Its, Graham Crackers, Cereal Bars, Pudding, Water and various other kid friendly snacks. These food items will help my students keep their bodies fueled.

When a body's basic need for food and water is met, little minds can focus more on academics.

This means more preschoolers are in the classroom learning awesome new things.
