My Students

The early childhood educational experience pivots around play. "Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning....They have to play with what they know to be true in order to find out more, and then they can use what they learn in new forms of play." - Fred Rogers

I teach all day Kindergarten in a high poverty district in rural Oklahoma.

My students come to me from many different home situations, some affluent, some low income. But they all share the commonality of an eagerness to learn. Year after year, as I get to know each new class and the students within them, I find that within every child dwells an intrinsic desire to learn. It is up to me, then, to orchestrate a path for learning that is based on the knowledge I have about how young children learn best, which is through their play.

My Project

Centers is a daily part of our routine where students engage in meaningful play that involves practicing curriculum such as phonemic awareness, early reading skills, math, science, and social studies. Additionally, my students are able to practice life skills such as courtesy, cooperation, and problem solving. During my first year of teaching, I bought a set of kitchen equipment for my pretend center at a garage sale that a day care center was having. The furniture has been functional, but it is definitely worn out. It is missing a door, other doors are difficult to open and close, and the knobs no longer work as they should. With new furniture, my students will be able to create a realistic dramatic play environment where their imagination can go to work. In dramatic play my students experience different occupations and try out roles of people that they would not normally be in ordinary circumstances. The pretend center is a popular center and it is loved by all of my students.

Centers truly is a time where my students are learning curriculum in an age appropriate way.

They are exploring, creating, building, and extremely engaged in their work. Please consider donating to this project to help give my students functional and safe dramatic play equipment so that their pretend center can operate at its highest potential.
