Kindergarten is a time of huge academic growth. My students are engaged all day with various academic and social activities. When you can keep it fresh by incorporating a variety of resources, they thrive in their learning. This year, I will again have a group of energetic, eager learners that will come to school with a variety of academic and social needs.
My school has a very diverse student population, representing many different cultures.
Nearly seventy percent of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. My classrooms represent many different ethnic groups. This makes for a very wonderful learning environment. Despite their economic hardships, my students come to school every day enthusiastic and ready to learn. I am excited to start this year with a new group of learners.
Trying to help young students while they are learning from home is hard without the proper materials.
I am hoping to get my Kindergarten students pattern blocks, geoboards and letter tiles to assist with our math and literacy lessons.
Kindergarten students learn best while they are able to manipulate the actual materials. Pattern blocks can be used to help support skills like patterning, sorting, shapes, attributes and early geometry. Geoboards will not only support math skills but also fine motor while they are having to manipulate the small rubber bands.
Having letter tiles at home will allow us o build words and manipulate sounds while working together or offline.
