My Students

Our incredible kindergarten friends are hardworking, kind, and always ready to learn. Despite circumstances that may challenge others, they persevere with grace and adorable smiles that make teaching them a true joy.

A multitude of languages and cultures combine to make our kindergarten both diverse and a place where students can come together and share everything that makes them unique.

Obviously kindergarten is a lot of hard work, mixed with a ton of fun, a little glitter, and a lot of love.

My Project

Hands on material is key to learning in Kindergarten. These materials will allow my students to build skills necessary for reading and writing.

My students are engaged and building executive functioning skills when they are using manipulatives to help them learn.

The magnetic letters will be used in centers and sensory bins to help students build their sight word knowledge. The building materials will be used to integrate learning through play. Students will work together to reinforce and expand their learning and skills.

My students will gain independence and confidence with these materials. They will also learn how to corporate and work together.
