My Students

I teach in a Title 1 school District with mostly low-income families. My Kindergarten classroom is filled with twenty-one eager and enthusiastic bilingual students who are ready to learn. We are working every day to "grow our brain muscles" and become hard working and inquisitive lifelong learners.

Our school mascot motto is "Warriors Achieving Excellence!" My students achieve excellence through all of the new challenges they conquer in the classroom each day.

We work in large and small groups to foster a love of reading, writing, and math. My class is also focused on fine motor development to get them ready for success in the rest of elementary school and beyond. We love hands-on learning and exploring the world beyond our classroom. Coming into my classroom is oftentimes, the first educational experience these children have had and we want that experience to shape their future in a positive way!

My Project

We have been learning from home since the beginning of the school year. I want to give my students LEGO bricks to practice counting, patterns, colors, and shapes while expressing their creativity.

Lego building blocks are essential to learning and are as important as pencils, crayons and paper.

These materials will provide my students with hands-on materials to help distance learning easier. All students will then have access to the same materials that we can use during our virtual lessons. They can bring the materials to our virtual classes and be able to use them to practice different math skills. They will also build language skills by being able to tell what they made and explaining how they did it. I cannot wait to hear the conversations that will come up from utilizing their creativity.
