Circle of Friends

My Students

I have a wonderful group of children from very diverse backgrounds. 7 different languages are spoken in my class. We have our challenges but everyday is an exciting celebration because we embrace our differences and learn from each other. Our families also struggle with poverty, but like every family there is so much love and hope for their children to have a better future. I am honored to be a part of that dream and I love working with them to make it come true.

My Project

Having a circle rug is perfect for my kindergarten students. No more tall kiddos in the back (some of them need to be close to me). Everyone will be able to see the lessons that are being taught. I want everyone to see each other at morning meeting. It is so important to teach the littles to listen when others are speaking. Also, it will allow them to proudly share work that they have done. And we cannot forget playing our favorite game at the end of the day. Wonder ball!

When you are O U T you may choose a free choice center.
