My Students

I have both a morning and afternoon class full of fun loving, energetic, unique 4 year old children. They come from various backgrounds and cultures. Some speak another language including Hmong, Spanish, Bosnian and even sign language.

My students are young, inquisitive and very busy exploring their world.

They really love hands-on, active, engaging games and material. They come to school each day ready to explore and learn from the environment around them. I truly learn something new from them each day because of their young and fresh perspective on life.

My Project

Most four year old children learn best through hands on experiences and my students are no different. The materials I have requested are engaging and fun along with enough material for each individual student to be able to work independently. I have also asked for a magnetic board for me as the teacher to use when working with individual students.

These materials will engage my students and ultimately help them learn the academic skills they need to be successful in years to come.

I am very excited to use these materials with small groups of children, ultimately being able to work with them at the level they are currently at and helping them advance in both their math and literacy skills.

These skills will build a foundation for academic success throughout their school experience.
