My Students

We have an excited, energetic, talkative, amazing group of kindergartners! We have nineteen students who love to learn. Kindergarten is a busy place where we are always working to balance social/emotional learning with meeting academic standards as well! Most of all, we want to teach children to continue to love learning and create a desire for children to become lifelong learners!

Kindergartners are a unique group of students, making a big shift between preschool and first grade, with growing independence and problem solving skills!

This class in particular seems to really love board games!

My Project

Students need board games and opportunities to play with their peers! Playing board games can not only increase academic opportunities with counting, numbers, and letters, it also supports speaking and listening skills, interpersonal skills, problem solving skills, self regulation, and more! Not to mention how much fun it is to play games with friends! Games like Zingo, Spot it, and Sequence will support the literacy and math standards for kindergarten as well as build executive functioning skills! Students will play with teacher support in small groups and then by themselves as they gain the skills needed to play in partners! Our special educator will have a second copy of each game to support students who may need extra instruction or support in playing which will help them socially connect with their peers at a deeper level.

Learning to play games independently with their kindergarten peers is an essential part of growing up!

Having practice understanding games, winning and losing, and being a good sport is all part of learning to self regulate and solve conflicts together. These lifelong skills will cross over into many other parts of their day and lives!
