My Students

I have a group of energetic, fun loving, kindergartners who are eager to learn. They are motivated by hands-on learning experiences. They love to read, write, solve math problems, and explore!

As my students learn and grow, they are continuously enjoying their learning experiences through fun, meaningful, and engaging activities.

In this class, we build a community of learners through shared experiences. My students are learning, playing, communicating, and working their way to independence by learning in my classroom!

My Project

My eager learners love the opportunity to think critically through the use of STEM learning. The students are allowed to stretch their minds through the use of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. My project includes many hands-on learning activities that will encourage my students’ critical thinking skills.

The manipulatives will be used at the very beginning of the instructional day to start the day off in a fun engaging way.

Students will use the materials to create things that allow them to apply their learning.

By donating to this project you will help create a classroom that encourages students to think more critically about the world and how it works!
