My Students

I have a fantastic class! It is filled with energetic, enthusiastic and motivated learners. My students have a unique variety of abilities, interests, and learning styles. They are sweet, kind, caring, and really funny! They love school and they are really eager to learn.

In kindergarten, it is developmentally appropriate to have lessons where the kids have opportunities to interact hands-on and creatively.

In kindergarten, we must focus on rigorous academics, free play, creativity, and developing fine and gross motor skills.

My Project

I teach art to all 3 kindergarten classrooms at my school. It is one of my favorite parts of the week. I love doing projects kindergartners can actually use. I think it sparks creativity and builds confidence.

I am requesting tumblers and mugs the children can design.

The paint pens and funky tape sets can be used with these projects as well as many others. For example, every writing unit I let my class design a cover for their book. The sparkly and bright colored tape adds a fun twist to their books.

I also ordered white gift bags. I love having the children design their own bags when they make gifts for holidays or special occasions. It makes their present even more sentimental.

Thank you so much for supporting my classroom and public schools!
