My Students

Our classroom is a place where music and movement are indispensable to the learning process. We work and play together every day, learning, growing, and reaching out to each other as we endeavor to make a difference in the world.

Each student is unique and indispensable to our classroom community.

We call ourselves "OWLS" which stands for "outstanding, wonderful learners." And we do love to learn. Hands-on learning and inquiry-based discovery are key to our daily education. With many emergent readers, our classroom is an environment rich in literacy. Young students are engaged, exposed, and excited about reading and learning in general.

There is a positive energy that exists when entering our classroom. Our school is a new school where the theme of letting our individual songs soar is encouraged. We celebrate success, respect, and kindness and as such, these traits are in abundance. There is a enveloping sense of belonging within the walls of this new building. Students strive and thrive to be the best that they can be.

My Project

My students are just in the early stages of learning to be readers and writers. Often they lack the fine motor skills needed to form their letters correctly with a pencil. Having magnetic alphabet letters will help them practice correct letter formation, while exercising their hands to increase fine motor skills without the frustration.

My students now know all of their letters and sounds!

Now comes the fun part of blending letters and sounds together to form words. The blends and digraphs teaching tubs will allow my students to have hands-on-learning where they can sound out and differentiate between the various blends and digraphs in our language; making learning and practicing fun! Finally the store and charge tablet will make organizing our classroom ipads a breeze - and hopefully no more tears when students realize their ipad battery is low! Teaching students responsibility and organization is another huge part of kindergarten. Thank you for making these endeavors a possibility!
