My Students

As a first-year teacher, I look forward to meeting my first class of kindergarteners. Teaching is my passion and I am excited to create a positive and welcoming environment for students. Kindergarten students are so eager to learn and grow each day which makes teaching them an absolute joy.

Kindergarten is the time where students learn to love learning.

Students become part of a community for the first time and learn how to be a student. This first year of school is important to set them up for a life long love of learning and a love of school. During this first year, students start to discover themselves as an individual and as a student. I am so lucky to guide children through this year and help them grow.

My Project

Kindergarten is a time for students to exchange ideas and learn how to communicate. Circle time is a daily routine in kindergarten. We read stories, learn about calendar and take part in group discussions at our circle time.

This rug will help students be a part of our discussions and lessons.

This carpet, in particular, is great for kindergarten students because of the letters on each square. This carpet is also amazing because it has a picture for each square of something that starts with the letter. This is not only great for circle time but can be a fun game for students to throw a ball and identify the letter and sound. Students will get to have their own square and learn about personal space. This rug will be an area we use often and a focus in our room.
