All about Kindergarten

My students need their classroom to be more age appropriate and provide collaboration with new tables.

My Students

We are a Title I school serving the lowest income families in our neighborhoods. 98% of our families receive free or reduced meals.

My students walk into our classroom every day full of energy, eager to learn, and excited for what is going to happen that day.

I tell them, "I have the best kindergarten class in the whole world!" I want them to know I believe in them and that they can do anything they work for. I tell them that my job is not only to get them to 1st grade, but to get them to college. I want to prepare my students to succeed and to see their dreams become reality.

My Project

Kindergarten classrooms today do not reflect the Kindergarten class of the past. We need to provide a rigorous academic curriculum but in a way that keeps age appropriateness in mind.

The tables will allow for Kindergarten classrooms to be more age appropriate and provide a way for students to collaborate.

Using round tables in place of desks will enable me to provide that. They will also allow for more flexible seating options such as exercise balls and stools.

Using these tables, students will be seated in a way to promote social-emotional skills as well as provide a way for peer learning.
