My Students

We are a state-funded, preschool for all program in a rural town. We serve students from at-risk families from a variety of different backgrounds including low-income, teen parents, homeless families, and foster families. This is the first year for our class so I am working hard to create a fun, age-appropriate, hands-on room for students. Our classroom is a little different than most. I have two preschool-aged classes - one class that consists of students who have special needs, and one class that is a blended pre-k class with some typical students and some students with special needs.

My students come to school each day smiling, excited to play, and eager to learn.

They are hands-on, enthusiastic, and active learners. They love to explore and investigate the world around them and they thrive in an environment that allows them to be creative and to think outside of the box.

My Project

I am asking for a variety of reading materials for my preschool classroom ranging from books on CD for students to independently read through to books showing a variety of careers that my students can grow up to do.

Reading develops your brain, provides a window into the world around you and helps you do better in all school subjects.

Most importantly, reading can not only help you become a better student, but a better person. You can learn from the brightest people whenever and wherever you choose. I feel that offering my students a large selection of books will spark their interest in books and reading early on in life. “Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.” – Margaret Fuller
