My Students

I have an amazing group of kinders! Wonderful students, ages 5-6, come to school every morning with enthusiasm and love, ready to learn and grow. Each day is full of fun and laughter as we explore a variety of themes through all academic areas.

My kiddos are an amazing group of learners who enhance my teaching experience, as well as their own social growth & academic success.

I try my best to incorporate all forms of fun into our learning-videos, movies, books/text, art projects, hands-on science, computer technology, and more! Through this, my students are getting to learn in a way that sparks their imaginations, develops a better sense of creativity, and allows the opportunity to add a little more to what they learn and they love this!

My Project

The materials that I've chosen in this project will be used to help get the student organized and keep things colorful!

The new stapling tools & colored paper will be used to make crafts throughout the year as well as student booklets & centers.

My students love being creative and having these fun colored papers will give them plenty of options to use their imagination and become strong learners.

Other items on this project include new math books that tie into our curriculum and center games we play. Some new headphones to replace older broken sets, as well as paper storage bins will help as well.
