Why you chose to decorate the way you did/what you wanted to achieve in the decor?

I wanted to achieve a welcoming, nurturing space that would allow 4 and 5 year olds to feel comfortable playing, working, and learning in.  I also wanted to provide a space that provides opportunities for rich, spontaneous learning experiences.


 

 

 

 


Description of Pre-K Program:

Pre-K is a lively place where children learn by doing, sharing, and experiencing. Our program helps launch children into the world of education with high self esteem and the skills they will need for the next stage of their academic journey. The classroom has been intentionally designed to support values of joyful play, wonder, discovery, 

and curiosity. It offers rich centers for investigating and engaging in science, math, early literacy, creative art, and dramatic play. We 

utilize the Learning Without Tears curriculum and we regularly collaborate on special cooking activities and science experiments. Pre-K children also have weekly chapel, art, music, and urban gardening lessons outside of the classroom.

How many months/years in the classroom?

 I have been an educator for ten years; I've taught grades first, second, third, and fourth.  This is my first year as a Specialist Teacher as well as my first year teaching a Modular Classroom and I love it! 

Why you chose to decorate the way you did/what you wanted to achieve in the decor?

 I wanted to create a welcoming environment where students would want to come to relax and take a load off.  Often times, the discussions that we have in SEL are centered around student's emotions, experiences, and opinions of themselves and others. These conversations are not always easy to have as it often requires transparency, honesty, and bravery on the student's part as well as on my own.  I thought it was important to create a space where students would be encouraged to feel at home to take a load off, free to be themselves, and be celebrated for who they are individually as well as a community of learners.  As you see in the pictures, we have a fish tank which the students help in sharing the responsibility of taking care of the fish inside and their environment outside.  I also have coaches and pub table where students can sit to have conversations with me or other students.  I try to play music that keep that cool, calm vibe.  Lastly, I tried to add positive quotes around the room to inspire students to be themselves and strive to be the best versions of themselves.
