My Students

In my school district, three small towns join in one community school district. Kindergarten is the first time where many of them meet the classmates they will likely sit with when they graduate high school. I believe a large part of kindergarten learning is done in motion. My students investigate, explore, research, analyze, and question as we learn and grow together. They work hard, make mistakes, and persevere to grow into lifelong learners.

If we treat children's play as seriously as it deserves, we are helping them to feel the joy that's to be found in the creative spirit.

~Fred Rogers

I am a passionate learner myself spending time reading and learning about children and the way they are changing in today’s technological world where they have the information world at their fingertips. To me, it is critical to find ways to spark the engagement of five and six-year-olds to reach their diverse learning styles while meeting our rigorous curricular and social-emotional needs. Children enter the classroom every day with their own challenges whether they be social-emotional, ADHD, hunger, developmental delays or learning disabilities.

My goal is to "even the playing field" for all students to learn and have fun!

My Project

This year our class has added math "games" to our repertoire of academic fun activities after our traditional math lessons. During this time, the teacher is able to meet with individual students who may need additional practice or small group review on the current skills being taught, while children choose from a variety of math "games" or standards based activities at their table. This is a free choice activity and ones that students are engaging with independently. Kids will choose from any of the games and can put one away and choose another at any time throughout this learning practice. Each table is colored and their games are all color coordinated, so that if any pieces go missing, we know where they belong. Students are practicing skills that have been previously taught in math chapters or lessons prior to the game being added to our collection. These games stay at the table and each group will have the same 10-12 activities to choose from at any given time from their colored collection. It is important to have a way to code them so that pieces aren't lost and I am not recreating games when we have something lost.

The only way to learn mathematics, is to do mathematics.

In addition to math games, we also use white card stock for a parent holiday gift that students make for their families and for a variety of thank you cards and directed drawing art projects.
