My Students

My students are curious, amazing people. Most come to me in kindergarten without having gone to preschool or daycare. They don't readily have access to dramatic play or pretend. They come from poverty, many with traumatic backgrounds.

They need my help as their kindergarten teacher to develop basic social skills and learn how to work with each other.

These are the life skills everyone needs! My school is a Title 1 school with 100% free lunch. Any help is appreciated!

My Project

"Where do we put our papers, Mrs. Colasanti?" This is a question I was asked time and time again when I first started teaching kindergarten at ORES in the South Oak Park neighborhood of Sacramento. To my surprise the students didn't have a dedicated place they could easily turn in their work before they take it home. Their previous teacher had been having them put each worksheet and project in their backpacks one at a time. This lead to lots of messy backpacks overflowing with papers. I was able to make due for the rest of the school year with an old paper file I already owned because I was told the school didn't have funds to buy our classroom any furniture. But, this system is not ideal because the students cannot take out their own papers and projects. We need a space where students can put the work they are proud of, where I can easily pass out notes from myself and the school, and where they can grab their work themselves. They need to be able to take everything home in an orderly and organized manner. I will use the binder clips and labels to assign cubbies throughout the years. Thank you for supporting
