My Students

"Education is all a matter of building bridges."

Ralph Ellison

Each one unique. Each one looking for validation; a smile, a hug, words of encouragement. Each one eager to learn and to belong.

My students are a diverse group of loving children who come from low-income families. Their experiences are as diverse as they are. Some of my children will not see their caregivers until late evening since many work long hours and multiple jobs.

Our classroom is their second family. It is a safe place where they can thrive and experience language, art, music, dramatic play, science, math, and, of course, learning through play. It is a place where we build community as we learn to share, take turns, show compassion, work out our problems, learn to use our words to express how we feel, negotiate, follow rules and directions in order to learn and to be safe.

So what does the quote above have to do with us? This is where we build the bridge to prepare for kindergarten. This is where we build bridges between us to set the stage for a world filled with people who have learned the meaning of community.

My Project

As we learn about tubes and tunnels, we use paper towel tubes, rolled paper, and video examples. The children were especially excited to learn how animals build tunnels underground. They enjoyed seeing videos of trains moving through tunnels. They loved building our very own marble run with my support to design and construct their creation. Children love legos! It will be wonderful to take what the children learn in our large group lessons and provide them with lego materials to build tunnels and tubes in centers.

The lego kit will allow my students to build their own versions of tunnels independently and apply what they have learned as they play.

The pieces are easy to assemble and age-appropriate, allowing for hours of fun and creativity by my future engineers.
