My Students

My classroom has students of diversity, students with special needs, gifted students, and students who speak languages other than English. It is my job to see that they all develop the necessary early literacy skills to be successful.

My goal as a kindergarten teacher is to make learning fun!

The kindergarten students in my class come eager to learn and work hard every day! I want our classroom to be an inspiring and exciting place for all of my learners.

My Project

My kindergarteners are so imaginative! I believe in fostering that as much as I can! I have many areas of my classroom dedicated to imaginative play. My students have opportunities each day to play in kitchens, with dolls, blocks and lots of other great toys.

The addition of a puppet theater to our classroom would be an incredible way for them to stretch their imaginations even more.

They would be able to practice communication with the puppets! They would be able to practice sharing toys and space. They would be able to take turns giving puppet shows and practice being a respectful audience.

We would be so excited and grateful to have this puppet theater for our classroom! Thank you for considering us!
