My Students

My kindergarten students are curious, energetic 5 and 6-year-olds. Their excitement to be attending elementary school for the first time is contagious. From their first to last day, they soak up so much learning that their academic and social growth is amazing to experience.

Our school is located in a small rural town with a close-knit community that supports our school's vision of "Creating a Community of Learners and Leaders".

Visitors to our school immediately feel the support that each member of our staff and community gives to our students.

My Project

My kindergarten students will be performing science experiments weekly to help build their inquiry skills. This will lay a strong foundation for formulating hypotheses and using questions to help discover new learning.

The lab coats will "set the stage" for my students' learning and allow them to step into the role of being a scientist.

Once the stage is set, a child can discover how the real world reacts around them.

The hands-on learning that science provides will prepare my students to communicate ideas and support those ideas with their observations. Problem-solving skills are highly sought after in our workplace environments. I know that each experiment the students perform will help build these skills.
