My Students

I am a teacher who works with the preschool population which consists of both special needs students and typical students from the surrounding neighborhoods. The classroom that I teach in caters to both the typical and special needs students, primarily students with special needs and low income status or migrant worker. The students age range from 3 years old to 4 years old. The Pre-K program strongly supports the learning and growth of social skills, communication, cognitive skills, movement and fine motor skills..

We are a preschool class that loves to learn and play.

Many of the activities we perform are on a big carpet! We have our morning greeting and circle time while sitting on the carpet. We sing songs and do movement on the carpet. We also like to play with our trucks, play animals and do our relaxation techniques while on our big carpet.

My Project

The student will surely benefit from a nice, clean and new carpet.

The carpet will be located in a central part of the classroom.

The carpet will be the gathering place for the children. The carpet will provide many opportunities for the students to place on a clean and soft surface while in the classroom. The carpet will be an area for the students to lay, roll around, play with floor toy and sit. The is the are that the students will go to learn new songs, new stories and new learning concepts in preschool. The students will love a nice, clean and new carpet!
