I teach an amazing group of five- and six-year-olds who show their enthusiasm for learning and school daily. My students are very lucky because they get to share their days and classroom with classmates of different races, cultures, religions, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
My students learn best through doing and creating, and I strive to give them the environment that best meets their needs.
They deserve the best start to their education and the foundation to help them succeed.
How classroom space is used in very important in kindergarten. In my classroom, I like every space to have a purpose or two. Learning to read is a journey in kindergarten, and making the classroom as comfortable as possible with a rug and pillows only makes reading more fun and enjoyable. When students are in a place where they feel relaxed and comfortable they will do better.
Learning through doing and using our hands is one of the best ways to learn.
Not only will this rug be used during literacy centers as a comfy place to read, but it will also be used as our block building area during math centers, free choice, and indoor recess. Building with blocks is something every kindergarten student loves to do. However, blocks fall and can be loud. This rug will give us a great place to build with blocks, and we can use our imaginations to its fullest without worrying about disrupting other students.
Help us make our classroom a great place to learn!
