Mrs. C. from Chicago IL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students dry erase markers to be better prepared for kindergarten.
As a Pre-K teacher in a low-income area, my students are inquisitive, curious active explorers and are vessels ready to learn. My students learn mostly through exploration and play. Language is developed when I listen to and speak with students during center time and during small groups. I also make sure to have individual conversations with each child throughout the day. My students are encouraged to talk about what they are doing during the day and to tell simple stories.
Many of my students are from single parent households and they receive free breakfast and lunch as part of the Head Start Program.
Some of my children have disabilities ranging from hyperactivity, attention deficit disorder, speech and language difficulties. I try to engage all students by getting to know and understand each student so that I can help them learn best.
Dry erase markers will ensure that my students have the resources to learn fine motor skills. Students begin the year learning and tracing how to form lines, circles, and shapes. Students will then learn how to form letters and finally move to writing their names.
My students are anxious and excited to use dry erase markers when learning.
Students write on reusable write and wipe pockets which allow them the ability to trace and eventually being able to write free handed. during whole and small group activities using white boards.
Finally, students will have many free choice opportunities to practice writing using these markers.
