My Students

Our class is amazing! We are a kindergarten inclusion class.

These students come from many countries from all over the world!

Many of the parents in our school do not speak English, and these children are first-generation Americans. There are many diverse learners in the classroom. These students are amazing and come to school every single day eager to learn!

My Project

Kindergarten! Whew! It’s time to get those little brains working! There is so much to cover and learn! Let’s have fun doing it!

Learning through play is the best way for young learners to learn!

All of the materials will be used during the students’ center time block of time. They receive thirty minutes for literacy centers and thirty minutes for math centers. Let’s make this time the most engaging and fun block of time possible! The more engaged the students are, the more they will learn!

We are very excited for the upcoming school year. Let’s get this year started with amazing and engaging activities!
