Pre-K students are the best! They are a breath of fresh air, a new beginning, clean slates... and it is with great excitement that I get to welcome them to their first public school experience! My class is publicly funded by the state through the Virginia Preschool Initiative "to provide quality preschool programs for at-risk four-year-olds unserved by Head Start." I am so excited to be in this school setting and cannot wait to add more educational and exciting learning experiences to my classroom!
Sensory experiences are so important for student development. A table full of water can help calm a child on a rough day by letting them fill and pour a bucket. A child who needs to develop stronger fine motor skills can pinch plastic bones in a table full of sand using tweezers. During a week learning about the beach, children who have never been able to make the trip can feel the sand run between their fingers. In the spring, a week about flowers can be extended to include a table full of soil and shovels so they can really feel involved in the learning experience! The possibilities are endless!
