My Students

I am looking forward to meeting a new bunch of Kindergarten learners. The classroom will be housed in an elementary school on the south side of Chicago in a community where many graduates come back to visit and enroll their children to obtain the rich educational experience they did. The first weeks of Kindergarten are exciting and can be a little scary for those students who have never attended school. Each student will develop at his or her own pace and will bring a diverse skill set to the classroom.

Social emotional learning and making a connection with the adults in their life is an essential part of early development that helps guide the success of Kindergartners.

I look forward to their creativity, diverse learning styles, and progress!

My Project

In order to reach their fullest potential, it is imperative that students are provided with the appropriate resources. Some resources that can contribute to their successful development are flexible seating cushions, musical instruments, and tactile materials such as play dough. Flexible seating cushions will be used to help students take ownership of their learning by choosing which materials will help them learn best. Musical instruments and a CD/Cassette player will help students who are preferred auditory learners to use sound as gateway to their acquisition of literacy, mathematics, science, and social emotional learning. Sand and play dough will guide students who prefer to use their hands to successfully acquire phonemic awareness.

Young learners can perform their best when their learning styles are acknowledged and enhanced upon.

The materials that are listed above will help to guide individualized small groups, in which each students' preferred learning style will be developed to help them become more successful.
