My Students

Kindergarten is all about embracing the love of learning and each other each and every day. We spend our days building relationships, creating, reading, computing and understanding the world around us so that we can be contributors to this wonderful world in which we live.

I am the lucky teacher of 18 inquisitive, passionate, outgoing, sweet Kindergartners and my students love learning!

They come to school each day ready to embrace new learning and challenges. My students are open to new ways of learning and thinking and using many different modes to soak up their new learning.

These students are our future and I want to provide them opportunities inside my classroom to foster creativity and passion, preparing them to be our world's future leaders.

One day, we will make the world a better place!

My Project

My students love to learn and LOVE technology. We already have two iPads in the classroom and I've already noticed their engagement in literacy and math increase. Currently, my students enjoy using our classroom iPads to listen to stories read aloud. This specific exercise builds their recognition of words and a fluent model of reading. Adding an iPad as a resource for my students will allow more students to engage during our literacy and math station time.

Adding an Osmo will make our learning more tactile and engaging.

Specifically, giving my students the coding game will allow them to engage in the foundations of technology. It will provide for hands on learning experiences that will build their skills in math, literacy and science as they learn to code.
