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

Students love exploring technology. However, after a long run, our projector died. We have been using a computer for these activities but you can imagine how much frustration 16 students encounter when crowding around a computer. Fortunately for us, we received an Epson Ultra short throw projector that can be mounted on my ceiling during #thebestdayever. However, we need the materials to allow it to be mounted. I will use this projector to do whole group lessons, small group lessons and for individual explorations.

Preschoolers need opportunities to move, touch and create in order to learn and this projector will bring that aspect back into our classroom.

For this project, I have requested materials such as computer mice, headphones, and aux cords.

I would love to give my students more experiences with technology. Students look forward to bringing creative arts into the classroom. With your help, our future will be bright.
