My Students

My students remind me everyday that they are the bright lights of our future. I teach a very diverse group of students in a full day inclusion classroom at a public magnet school in Savannah, Georgia. My students come from all across the county and from all different backgrounds, abilities and socioeconomic statuses. Despite these differences, they all have one thing in common - they are kindergartners.

My students come in everyday excited to learn.

A parent of one of my students stopped me at open house and wanted me to know their son said, "I'm so excited for kindergarten, you can't even imagine!" When I asked her how he liked the first day, she said he told her, "It was better than I ever dreamed!" This kind of infectious joy fills my classroom every single day.

My Project

Working on letter and number recognition at the beginning of the year can sometimes be monotonous for students. This project brings new life to students who are working on the foundations of reading and math. The upper and lowercase fishing activity paired with the water blocks brings a sensory component to letter identification while the number beanbag knockout adds a whole body component to learning numbers for kinesthetic learners.

My students love to learn through movement and poetry.

The letter pocket chart brings letter sounds to life with poems for each letter. The center organization chart will help us bring all of these great centers to life by keeping our rotations organized. I am always looking for fresh ways to present the most important skills to my students. They are going to love learning with this project!
