I teach 36 kindergartners in a Title I school. Our day is packed full of activities the minute they arrive. My eager learners look forward to their day with their friends and activities, and come into my class with big smiles and lots of stories!
Wide-eyed in wonder; as we explore stories of all kinds, dance and sing along as we learn the alphabet, numbers, and how to be better little humans.
We use our hands a lot to build those fine motor muscles learning through play. We build and read words, learn through games using all types of media, count anything we can gather up, draw, or manipulate. We are a busy class!
Our day begins and ends at carpet time. This is where we sing, read, dance, turn and talk, and practice essential skills. I need my students with me and engaged and these gel boards will help me see who understands the concepts as they are taught. 5 year olds love to share what they have discovered and these boards will be so much fun!
Our class is hands-on!
Our favorite part of the day is center time where we can explore the tubs filled with different activities. I always look for items that will help with fine motor development and encourage play. These items will be loved for many years to come!
