My Students

Bright, friendly, and eager to learn is how I would describe my kindergarten students. They are a diverse group from various backgrounds, but we are a Title I school, which means that many students qualify for free lunch. We also have a high population of foster children. Unfortunately, this also means that parents aren't always able to donate to help with class projects. However, I will not let these factors impede the quality of education I deliver to my students.

My students are sponges and they absorb a tremendous amount to information each day.

We read. We sing. We cook. We paint. We plant. We learn as much as we can to be prepared for college, career, and life!

My Project

This is my second year teaching full day kindergarten. My students are full of energy and come ready to learn everyday. Holding their attention can be a challenge at times. I am requesting materials that will engage my kindergartners and help foster their creative spirit. The Soft Building blocks will allow my future engineers to build and practice their problem solving skills during center time. The blocks are also quiet which will allow me to work with other groups, while they play independently. The Magnetic Designer will allow my students to expand their creative minds, while developing their fine motor skills and eye/hand coordination.

My students love stories and I know they will enjoy retelling fairy tales with the puppets.

I enjoy watching them act out the stories and get into character to entertain their classmates. Receiving these supplies will enhance their learning experience.
