My Students

My kindergartners are loving, caring, active and spontaneous both inside and outside our classroom. They come into class eager and ready to learn every day. I give my all to make their school lives warm and inviting.

Coming into class and learning to read is one of the hardest things they have to do but they put 110% into it.

For some of my Kindergartners learning the basic sight words is hard, let alone being able to read Kindergarten leveled text. I want to provide every one of them with a lifelong love of learning by providing them the tools they need to succeed!

My Project

My kindergarten students love to be at our read-to-self-station but at the moment the "comfortable" seating available to them is not very comfortable. They have to share because there are not enough beanbags for the students in the station, the beans have flatted and are not fluffy, they are constantly trying to get into a comfortable position that will help them focus. These bean bags will give each of my students their own space to be relaxed and move without having to keep trying to get in a cozy position to read.

The wiggles are real in kindergarten!

These fun seat cushions will allow my five- and six-year-old students to wiggle, twist, and squirm without drawing attention to themselves. Seat cushions help students who are unable to focus because they need to move, move. With them getting that movement while sitting and learning they are able to learn and pay attention because they can adjust and be comfortable.
