My Students

My students are the best of the best. They are fun, loving and enjoy learning through play. I have a very diverse group of children who come from many different cultures. Most of my children are bilingual. These children are super fast learners who have a passion for learning. I am blown away everyday by how these children show kindness toward their peers.

My children love to sing, dance, and role play, acting out scenarios from books we have read.

They also love art: drawing, painting and coloring pictures from favorite books we have read. Most of all they love playing in the house keeping center. They especially like to pretend to be a chef, doctor, or fireman. I enjoy setting the stage and encouraging my students to pretend to play cashier, and being a mom taking care of the baby dolls.

My Project

My students will be over the moon with a new colorful rug. They will be thrilled to play in an area of comfort and color beneath their feet. I can envision all their questions, the how's and why's about the rug. Sometimes they like to take their shoes off to try on other shoes, just imagine how that will feel beneath their feet.

This new rug will cause the children to play, and interact daily with peers.

They will engage in conversations and role play while doing it in a beautiful area that has a nice colorful rug donated by wonderful donors. The lessons plans will be social emotional interacting, learning how to engage in conversations, learning about jobs of community helpers, math, cooking activities, and so much more.My class and myself will be so thankful to receive this rug. Thank you.
