I currently teach pre-kindergarten in Baltimore City Public Schools. I teach some of the most energetic and eager scholars that I have ever met. Not only do they enjoy coming to school, but they are excited every day when they walk into the classroom!
My students work hard to succeed every single day.
They know that if they try their best, they will be rewarded. Every Friday the early learning team makes a treat that begins with the letter of the week the students have been working on. For example, for the letter 'P' they got to make pepperoni pizzas! This has to be my students favorite day of the week. It gives them the motivation that they will use through out the entire school year, and fuels a love for learning.
My pre-kindergarteners are working towards their goal of becoming wonderful readers and writers. The permanent white boards built onto the walls in the classroom are too tall for my four year old students to reach. They need one more suited to their needs.
Having a white board that they can actually write on comfortably will help them every single day during the morning message.
Morning message is a short message that students get to analyze in order to weave reading, writing and word study into a daily lesson. In the beginning of the year I write the message. It is the students' job to look for letters they know, punctuation, sight words, and the main idea. By doing this activity every day, students are able to create their own message by the end of the year.
