My Students

Kindergartners are amazing. They want to learn but still have a huge need to play. They come into school all excited and ready to go and then move through very difficult curriculum. I find the excited look on their face when they read their first word or sentence and even a book so rewarding. They just jump around when they can count to 100.

Each morning, we have a lesson to set the tone of the day.

We work on community, empathy and diversity to learn to get along. Then we move to curriculum that is in the reading, writing and math areas. Wow! It is amazing to be a kindergarten teacher.

My Project

The children will come into a beautiful classroom that will have work tables that will be stable (not wobbly) and also have new round tables for small group lessons. They will have safe chairs that will not fall over!

Each group will have tables and chairs that match and they can be grouped easily.

They will have boxes to match their tables to hold their materials for daily work (pencils, crayons, scissors and glue sticks) where my hope is that this will help them develop their "community" feeling each day .

I believe a new environment for learning will help my students experience greater success as we move through our daily lessons and activities.
