My Students

My students are the greatest group of five and six-year-olds. With high energy levels and enthusiasm, my class always comes to school so eager to learn. My class is very diverse with some families being more fortunate than others.

The twenty-five students in my class come from varying walks of life, but together we have created one community.

Kindergarten is often my students' first year of school. It is so crucial to build their excitement toward learning and encourage them to achieve great things in the classroom.

My Project

Engagement is key when teaching students. One way to engage young learners is through a classroom transformation. A classroom transformation is when you turn your traditional classroom into a different space. The materials being requested will allow me to complete two classroom transformations - 1. a surgical room and 2. a restaurant. Both of these transformations will allow me to teach academic content with a twist. I will be able to captivate my students with the unexpected and turn them into chefs and surgeons. They will complete lessons focused on academic content infused with clean and healthy choices. Imagine coming to school in the morning and all of a sudden your kindergarten classroom has been turned into a surgical suite and you have your very own gown, gloves, and mask. You would be so excited to hear about what we will be learning for the day! On this transformation day we could participate in activities such as sentence surgery where we work on editing and revising with a surgery theme. Students could use the bandaids to practice revising sentences while wearing a a medical gown and mask. Much more engaging than a boring worksheet! The apron and chef hats would be used for a restaurant transformation. We could participate in activities such as book tastings where we review books while wearing our restaurant attire. Or practice reading numbers while cooking a recipe! The possibilities are endless! Please help me provide my students with the materials necessary for these engaging lessons!
