My Students

My students are the greatest group of five and six-year-olds. With high energy levels and enthusiasm, my class always comes to school so eager to learn. My class is very diverse with some families being more fortunate than others.

The twenty-five students in my class come from varying walks of life, but together we have created one community.

Kindergarten is often my students' first year of school. It is so crucial to build their excitement toward learning and encourage them to achieve great things in the classroom.

My Project

Back to school is upon us! Thinking about back to school makes me think about all the back to school items my students will need to help kick off the year. Some of the items we go through frequently include crayons, writing utensils, journals, post its, chart paper, etc. All of these items are used on a day to day basis across all content areas. Most of my students are coming to school for the first time and are so excited to start using these supplies like their older siblings. They love writing in their journal and drawing pictures to tell their stories. We also frequently use chart paper and post its to share our thinking and chart our ideas. Many of these supplies being requested will also help fill the demand for supplies of the students whose families are unable to send in supplies. Having these extra materials will help to ensure that ALL students are prepared every day!
