My Students

My goal is to make my classroom fun and engaging. I want my students to love coming to school and to be active learners!

I have 24 kindergarten and transitional kindergarten students.

They come to school each day with big smiles on their faces and are ready to learn. Several students in my class have ADHD and one student is Autistic. My goal is to meet the needs of all of the learners in my classroom. I teach in a low-income school with a high number of English language learners. My school is innovative and offers a wide variety of after-school clubs to give opportunities to students that many probably wouldn't have otherwise.

My Project

I believe in making my classroom hands-on, engaging, rigorous, and magical! I am inspired by the amazing educators at the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, GA. At least once a month, I transform my classroom into a different place. From a jungle (complete with Jeeps and hanging vines) for our ABC Safari, to a construction zone for building to 100, to an ocean (complete with a boat hanging from the ceiling!) as we study the different zones of the oceans and the adaptations sea animals have to live in each zone. The look on my students' faces as they enter the classroom on transformation days is indescribable. Throughout the entire day, students are focused, engaged, and learning! This is especially true for students in my classroom that have ADHD or Autism. These special days are filled with hands-on learning and movement, which reaches all students.

"Provide an uncommon experience for your students and they will reward you with an uncommon effort and attitude." -Dave Burgess, author of "Teach Like a Pirate"

I am requesting glow sticks, glowing hats, glow bowling & ring toss, glow tape, glow balloons, glow cups, glowing slime, and glow hats to use for a reading-targeted Glow Day. The disposable lab coats will be used to work on math skills during our Surgery Day. The photo backdrops, giant Slinky, & giant gummy bears will be used to transform my classroom into Candyland as we work review math and reading skills.

All of the requested items will help me to transform my classroom and as Hope King says, "Set the Stage to Engage!"
