My Students

I am the teacher of 20 smart, kind, and curious kindergarteners. We are a part of a public magnet school for world language with a unique approach. Not only do we have language class every day, but students are also exposed to a curriculum centered around global citizenship. It is never too early to learn about global citizenship and what it means to live in this changing world.

Despite 92% of our students living in low income households, my scholars come to school every day ready to learn and eager for any opportunity that comes their way.

We especially love reading, playing outside, and our class mascot (Mr. Banana the stuffed monkey). Most of all, we love working together in our diverse classroom where everyone adds value to our community.

My Project

Up until last week, our classroom had a rule: don't touch the easel! We had this rule because our trusty old easel had nails sticking out, was extremely heavy, and very unstable (not a great combination for 5-year-olds). However, we continued to use our easel because it was the center of lots of learning in our class. That is, until one poor kinder went to check the global focus of the week and the easel bonked him in the head! Ms. Webster said, "No More!", and that was the end of our classroom easel.

Our class needs a new easel to help us stay engaged and learning all day long.

To be productive, all kindergarteners require an example and that is the purpose of our easel. In all subjects (math, science, social studies, and literacy) we start off with a whole group lesson at the easel. Then, students go off to try it independently while using the easel to refer back to what we did as a group.

Although it may seem expensive, this is the only easel that truly has everything we need (durable, magnetic board, dry erase, storage, and 2-sided). When I asked my students to help pick out a new easel they especially like this one because, "It looks like it won't fall on anyone's head." Please help my funny and creative kinders get the learning tools they need!
