My Students

My kindergarten students come to school every day eager and ready to learn. The littlest thing taught to them makes them so happy and they love to share their ideas and creativity with me the minute they walk through the classroom doors.

My students benefit from learning through all types of teaching whether it be worksheets, hands on manipulatives, or projects, their little minds are always ready to explore and learn.

Whether it is learning about letters or number, animals or stories, my students enjoy it all. At home, these children don't get the experiences they get at school, so when they are allowed to explore and learn, they are very grateful and appreciative.

My Project

The beginning of Kindergarten can be very scary for 4 and 5 year olds. It may be their first time in school full time, or at all. Making the classroom friendly and inviting is a key to making them feel comfortable and at ease.

Bright colors, hands on manipulatives, and easy storage options, are a great way to keep these little minds busy throughout the day!

The children will remember all the little details, and can go to certain areas in the classroom that make them feel at home. Using seasonal manipulatives with new friends will help ease their worries away. They won't even realize they are learning while they play!
