A Place For Sharing Is A Place For Caring

My students need a meeting place for circle time. In Kindergarten sharing experiences with each other is vital to learning and having a regular place to do this is necessary

My Students

I am a Kindergarten teacher in a public school system. Our school population is eighty percent Hispanic. Our parents are working class people who care about their children and see education as a way for their children to have a better future. They are very supportive of their children and of our neighborhood school.

My goal is to teach my students to be enthusiastic and independent learners.

Many of my students come to me with no formal educational experience. Since Kindergarten is the foundation for all the years to come, it is so important for me to make sure that I not only teach my students needed subject matter, but also teach them to love learning. This is a mission I take very seriously.

My Project

I am fortunate enough to have a rather large classroom. There is ample room for my Kindergarten students to learn and explore their world. We have tables for working, floor space for projects and I am interested in establishing a gathering space for Circle Time.

Communicating with others is an important skill to learn so that a child can become a well-adjusted adult.

This classroom carpet will allow us a gathering place to practice sharing our thoughts and feelings with each other. Here we can sing, talk and learn together. We can have a safe, consistent place to meet to share thoughts and feelings. A place for sharing is a place for caring.
