My Students

I teach a mixed-ability general education kindergarten class. There are 25 students in my class. They are a bunch of talented, inquisitive learners!

My students love to learn in a variety of ways-through movement, hands-on project-based learning, and through technology!

Each day, I strive to provide multiple learning opportunities for my students.

My school is an amazing place to work and to learn! Each grade has the opportunity to work with amazing artists on incorporating the arts to the curriculum. Kindergartners are currently participating in a dual language music program.

The materials I have selected are literacy games that will help with phonemic awareness. Some students struggle with initial sounds in words while writing and reading. These games will provide students with the opportunity to match pictures to initial as well as final sounds in words. I also requested some hands-on play toys for the housekeeping and dramatic play areas which will keep the students engaged in fun and meaningful play.

Also, I have selected some various flexible seating tools so that students have the chance to sit comfortably throughout the day.

My Project

The flexible seating lap desks will be super helpful for students who need a different type of seating to work in. My students enjoy having flexibility while doing their work. The markers and crayons will be used throughout the day as we work in writing workshop as well as projects!

Also, the math manipulative will work well as we work on addition and subtraction, as well as patterns!

My students really enjoy working with different kinds of manipulatives. We learn different strategies and ways to solve math word problems. Manipulative help students use a tactile way to solve. Thank you!
