My Students

Transitional kindergarten is a wonderful way to start school! The pace of the day and the activities allow the children to feel safe and get acclimated to the routines and experiences of a school setting. They are so excited to make new friends, learn new things, and explore the world around them. My goal is to support and help develop the children's understanding of mathematics, language, and science whether they are shy and quiet or energetic and boisterous.

Another important goal is to teach these young students how to play together; taking turns, sharing, and using their words to solve problems.

The children in my classroom come from a variety of cultures and backgrounds, and experiences being away from their family. A majority of the children speak English as a second language. But even with all their differences, they are still 4 years old, eager to make a friend and have some fun!

My Project

My students love building things. They build tall towers and bridges with wooden blocks, and castles with the plastic waffle blocks. But what they love the most, it to build with Legos, which are quite small for little hands to manipulate.

Duplos are the larger version of Legos and are a perfect size for 4 and 5 year olds to use.

There is already a small tub of Duplos in the classroom but only a a few kids can build a time. Having more Duplos and a greater variety, will enable more students to build. And the students will be quick to share that there are not enough Duplo people. Duplos are also very versatile and can easily fit into many of our units of study from Community Helpers to Farm Life.
