My Students

My goal is to make my classroom fun and engaging. I want my students to love coming to school and to be active learners!

I have 24 kindergarten and transitional kindergarten students.

They come to school each day with big smiles on their faces and are ready to learn. I teach in a low-income school with a high number of English language learners. My school is innovative and offers a wide variety of after-school clubs to give opportunities to students that many probably wouldn't have otherwise.

My Project

My students love learning through hands-on games and activities. The Lakeshore sight word game, CVC word building game, and letter building game that I am requesting will help my students enhance their learning. Students will be able to work on building words, sight words, and work on fine motor skills.

Using these centers is a great way to promote diversity and inclusion as my students will collaborate with peers to complete challenges and build the various words and letters.

As they work through these challenges, they will gain a better understanding of each other. These centers will help my students understand how important it is to listen to each other, respect each other, and work as a team!

These centers and manipulatives will not only help me to promote diversity and inclusion in my classroom, but they are a great way to incorporate engaging hands-on learning while meeting Common Core Standards! I am also requesting IKEA storage systems, bins, and lids to store all of these amazing materials in. This will make everything easily accessible and organized for my students.
