My Students

I love teaching Kindergarten! My students are inquisitive, happy, fun, and love learning! They come to school with smiles on their faces and are ready to learn! I love their boundless energy and their take on life. They are learning new things each day. The "window of learning" is wide open in Kindergarten! Little learners are like sponges that take in so much from the world, family and school. They are the future builders, designers, creator, thinker and artists! I am so blessed each year to welcome little Kindergarten friends to my room and be on their first journey of learning in school

My Project

Kindergarten student love to learn! My little learners enjoy hands-on activities and building. I love teaching STEM across my curriculum daily. The excitement that my students have for learning new things about science, technology, engineering and math is so important in today's world. My little learners are becoming problem-solvers and thinkers They are learning how to create things in a different way by exploration.

My Kindergarten students love to learn about science and love hands-on activities.

Our Kindergarten science kits include force in motion (gears, car building), different sound in force and motion, plant life cycle, insects, rocks, magnets, building structures, and science centers. Real world applications for little learners. The items that I have submitted will enhance our curricular science kits and offer more hands-on experiences. My hope is that students will learn cooperation, teamwork and communication skills when they are participating in STEM activities.
