My Students

I have an amazing group of kindergarteners this year! They have already grown so much, academically, socially, and emotionally - and we have only been in school for a month!

They each have such a passion for learning and a drive to be their best selves!

We work hard every day to grow closer as a class community. Each month my class picks a “Kindness Goal,” that we focus on to help cultivate kindness and empathy.

I cannot wait to see how far they go - in kindergarten and beyond!

My Project

Alphabet Sound Tubs are amazing tools for young learners! These tubs give students hands-on learning opportunities with letter names and sounds. They create an engaging environment where students can explore and experience the letters to a greater level! Students can use these tubs to practice independently, with a partner, in a small group, or even with their whole class! We can use these tubs to deepen our understanding of the letter names and sounds, which will allow us to become better readers!

With these tubs we can truly become letter masters!

I am so excited to use this resource in my classroom to help my kindergarten students start their love of reading!
