My Students

I am first year teacher starting mid year! I will have 13 lovable kindergarteners who I got to meet before winter break. The class of 28 is being split up, and I get half of the students. I am trying my best to keep procedures the same as what they’ve been doing thus far. With that being said, they love their bean bags and seat cushions for chairs in stations. Help me make this transition for these young scholars as smooth as possible!

My Project

My students will use these cushions and bean bags to enhance their learning by being comfortable and ready to learn in small group centers! They will be ready to go in small group math or reading centers at the teacher table with these cushions that they’re already used to! In centers, they will use the bean bag chairs when reading a book or using the iPad! Being switched to a different room with a different teacher is hard on any student, but will be especially challenging for these 5-6 year olds! Help make it go as smoothly as possible for them!
