My Students

Kindergarten is such a big year in a child’s life. It is their first year in this journey of education and I aim to make it a magical one! They come into Kindergarten, scared, shy, little ones eager to play and excited to soak up all that they can. I aim to use their playfulness and their excitement to help create the magic.

Kindergarteners need to feel not only safe, but comfortable and loved in their classroom.

For some of them, this is the first time they have been away from their families and they are diving right in to 6 hour days in a new place with a brand new teacher. This educational journey they have just begun is a long one, and I am only the first stop. I aim to create a classroom environment that feels like home. I want to create a space where they can feel the magic, love, and comfort from the moment they walk through the door. It is my goal to create a place that students want to go everyday.

My Project

It might seem odd that a teacher would ask for a carpet as a big wish, let alone 2. Would it be surprising to find out that the children in this classroom probably spend more time on those carpets than at their tables? I hope not, but it might be.

In this kindergarten classroom, we spend a good amount of our day on the floor!

We say good morning to each other and make each other feel welcome on the floor. We play on the floor. We listen to stories on the floor, and sometimes we even draw and write on the floor. So, when creating a classroom that feels warm and welcoming, you might say I think about the floor more than other areas of the room!
