Our school is an all preschool building. My classroom is a blended classroom with students with special needs mixed with general education students. I have an AM and PM class of 20 students; 6 of which have special needs and the other 14 students are a part of Preschool For All students.
My students, like any 3, 4, and 5-year-olds, learn through play and love hands-on learning!
I get the amazing opportunity to have students in my class for 2 to 3 years before they move onto kindergarten. Each and every student is eager to learn about new topics each day through play and hands-on learning.
Preschool students can come to school on the day of their third birthday. Many times, these students lack the language to be able to communicate their wants and needs. They may also lack to understanding of langauge to understand the words that we are teachers are using to communicate.
I create visuals in my classroom weekly to help children communicate and understand the language that I am using to communicate.
To make these visuals I print out simple pictures, cut them out, laminate them, and create a visual board or schedule using velcro. Velcro and lamination film are an expense that I frequently pay for out of my own pocket.
