My Students

This is a bright and active group of five and six-year-old children. They love to create and tell stories. They love to read and be read to. They are quickly learning to work together, which is a vital skill in our world. My children work in small groups and independently throughout the day. This helps them learn to focus and improve self-control issues. Small group activities that let us get up and move help our ADHD tendencies stay under control. We need real reasons to move and stretch.

My students grow in all areas by practicing and playing together.

Writing throughout the day in science, social studies, math, and even in art helps them in so many ways. They get noisy, but they learn so much together. They need supplies to grow as readers, writers, and illustrators. Our parents just cannot afford to supply these items. The students need to show the colors of their ideas. They also need ways to be active and help learn to control ADHD tendencies. There is so much to learn.

My Project

Kindergarten requires colors. We write and illustrate our stories. We illustrate our thinking in Math. We illustrate and label our science and social studies work. We use crayons for every subject all day long.

Primary crayons are easier for five and six year old hands.

Holding them helps us learn the correct way to hold all writing tools. These terrific crayons will help us grow and communicate about our thinking.

The counting bears will help us learn to sort and to count. Having the manipulatives to move for addition and number comparisons is vital. At this age, we work concretely so we can begin to work abstractly.
