My Students

Within the first week of kindergarten, I could tell that my kinders were kind beyond their years. It amazes me how much kindness can be held in such tiny bodies. They give hugs, high fives, compliments, and encouragement to me and their classmates. They make it a point to "fill each others' buckets". They may talk in the hallways sometimes, they may be too loud at lunch, they may not always finish their work, but they're kind. What more could I ask for?

There are so many tiny different personalities in my kindergarten classroom, yet, all of those personalities come together and create magic.

Some of them know almost all of their letters and sounds, some of them don't. Some of them can count to 100. Some of them can't. Some of them can use scissors. Some of them can't hold a pencil. Some of them have awesome social skills, while some are too shy to say "Good Morning". Yet, when I stand back and watch them interact with each other and work, the growth and possibilities they possess leave me speechless. They are truly magical tiny humans and they deserve even more than I could ever give​ them.

My Project

We are requesting a multipurpose easel for our learning childhood environment. With this multipurpose easel, my students can actively take part in shared writing and reading activities, in both large and small groups.

Being able to have an easel in our classroom will allow the students to be able to easily come up during shared writing activities and write their thoughts and sentences in front of the class to share.

I will also be able to write sentences for the class to demonstrate learning topics. This easel will also be used during whole group reading activities to display visuals to the class, such as magnets, pictures of characters from our stories, felt pieces, and other learning materials that we use for shared reading activities. We will also be able to use this easel to not only display our books during shared reading, but also to store our books, and other materials that we use during both small and whole group work.
