Building Kindergarten Centers for A Lifetime of Learning

My students need an organizing cart for centers, chair pockets for workbooks and papers, student mailboxes, a writing materials center, and reading/math manipulatives for literacy and math centers.

My Students

Every morning my kindergarten students experience multi-sensory learning centers where they can practice skills in building words, reading stories, writing about experiences and discovering new concepts. "Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand." Chinese proverb

My students live in the heart of East Oakland, in a densely populated urban area with high rates of poverty.

Over half of the students are learning English Language Learners. The families work hard to provide educational opportunities for their children. All the students at our school qualify for the free lunch program. The families want their children to become successful learners and have a very high rate of returning homework and reading at home. Our school faculty works to provide the best educational opportunities for our students. We are a balanced literacy school, using Lucy Caulkin's Reading and Writing Workshop models. Every student at our school uses RAZ Kids, an online reading program with leveled books for school and home. We need materials for students to practice reading and math skills during small group time. The organizational materials will help students gain easy access to the learning materials needed for practicing new concepts.

My Project

The reading manipulatives will provide hands-on practice in making words and learning sight words during our literacy centers. Our Writing Workshop needs an organized writing center where students will have easy access to writing paper, pens, stamps and publishing materials for practicing their first attempts at writing stories. Kindergarten students have a difficult time organizing their desk materials, so the chair pouches will help them to easily find their phonics workbooks, math books and reading materials. The student mailboxes will facilitate communication to families and encourage students to write letters to each other during Writers Workshop. The literacy and math cart will help store materials used during the six station center rotations.

My students will greatly benefit from organized and easily accessible reading and math materials.

They will feel successful and gain confidence in reading by being able to access materials they need. If a student is studying word families, it is important that he/she is able to have accessible choices in using a white board, magnetic letters or word building blocks. The students are motivated to write their first attempts at messages to friends and leaving them in mail boxes.
