My Students

My class this year is sweet, energetic and full of potential. These kindergartners are ready to learn and it shows! They are like little sponges as they absorb all there is to learn throughout the day. We have a diverse population with a strong focus on academics and success. Our students are held to high expectations and standards as they engage in their own learning and education throughout the year.

One of the most rewarding part of teaching is seeing the students take ownership of their own learning.

One of our biggest goals in this kindergarten class is to become efficient and autonomous in everything we do. Of course these sweet kinder babies still need a lot of help, but when the light bulbs start to go off and they start to become independent, the pride they show and feel in themselves is unmatched!

The precious students I have in my class this year are eager, creative and ready for an awesome year full of learning!

My Project

My students need seat sacks to improve classroom efficiency. This is my 5th year teaching and each year I have had made my own seat sacks. They have never been good quality and I end up throwing them out at the end of every year. I did not have time to make seat sacks this year, so I thought I'd try to do without. I miss them dearly! They truly make a huge difference in my classroom culture and management. Kindergartners are still learning their independence, so each instruction has to be repeated more than once.

When my students are having to store their materials somewhere other than their desk or seat, it adds to class transition time and takes away from valuable learning time.

I know how much of a difference seat sacks can make in a classroom and how much smoother they can make things run, which is why I started this project! Thank you so much for consideration.
