My Students

Students entering the Young 5's program should be 5 by September 30th. Most students entering the Young 5's program are between 4 years, 11 months and 5 years, 5 months upon the start of the school year. I have 2 groups of students with 15 students in each group. My students attend school all day, every other day on an all year alternating calendar schedule.

The students in the Young 5's program are chronologically ready to enter the school setting but may not be developmentally ready to endure the rigors of the Kindergarten curriculum.

The Young 5's program allows these students a year to develop the foundational skills needed in Language Arts to enter Kindergarten the following school year.

My Project

Young learners need many opportunities to move throughout the day. The students in the Young 5's program are chronologically ready to enter the school setting but may not be developmentally ready to endure the rigors of the Kindergarten curriculum. Although these students may not be developmentally ready to perform academically at the beginning of the year, they engage in lessons promoting language skills and develop the academic ability to apply these skills to the pre-reading and reading process at their own pace and level.

Because these young children need more opportunities to move, the objective is to purchase flexible seating, allowing for movement in a developmental way.

This seating will provide students with active seating to promote wellness and productivity, improve participation and behavior, and help with attention and focus while promoting an increase in their academic performance.
