My Students

I teach kindergarten students who are very enthusiastic and inquisitive learners. Their backgrounds are varied, from affluent to poverty level. Some are ESOL students, and some have special needs. Our school is large, with over 900 students in PreK through 5th grade. Our diverse population makes us special.

Our curriculum focuses on student inquiry-based learning with a global perspective with the essential hands-on learning.

They love to play in centers to learn financial literacy through a grocery store, create in an art center, build in a block and game center, listen to stories on a computer, read books in the reading center, and explore in the science center. They learn through play and by doing. Much of our daily instruction is in small groups using many different hands-on materials. Art and creativity play an important part in our classroom. We use lots of technology while creating stories and art. Almost all of our lessons are based on children's literature. We use a large variety of art and craft materials and are constantly replacing the materials used.

My Project

As part of our arts and literature focus this year we are enjoying various fairy tales. We are reading the tales, comparing and contrasting them, acting them out and illustrating them. The students love reading the tales and we are even writing our own.

We are concluding our unit of study with a grade level costume fairy tale ball.

The lights, the castle and the backdrop will be used to make our gym a fantasy land. We will make our own crowns and have a special snack. This will be a day to remember in the lives of my kindergarten students. Please help us bring our fairy tale ball to life.
