My Students

Kindergarten is a magical place that sets the foundation for life-long learning! Imagine a classroom full of energetic four to six-year olds who are curious, adventurous, caring and full of love. We spend our days making learning fun and meaningful.

My classroom consists of 26 students from a variety of different backgrounds.

Despite the challenges and trauma some of my students face we work together to make our classroom a safe and welcoming environment. In our classroom students are loved, supported and important. We work hard and have fun together while learning. I encourage students to always be the best version of themselves they can be. We set goals and work hard to achieve them.

My Project

In kindergarten it is important for each student to have their own defined space to learn. When sitting at the carpet during whole group instruction, most kindergarteners struggle to stay in their own space. Interruptions take away from valuable learning time.

With the purchase of this rug, students would have their own defined learning space.

Students participate in phonics/writing lessons, interactive read alouds and math talks while at the rug. The colored squares on the rug would allow me to use the rug as a classroom management tool as well. I would be able to call on specific colored squares to answer questions aloud or pair students by color to deepen learning experiences. The colored squares would also help with staggered release when needed. Students would enjoy finding different letters of the alphabet as we discuss each letter and sound. We would use the outer dark blue area to define our circle space for shared writing, campfire share and singing along to our weekly poems.
