My Students

My kindergarten class is comprised of 26 amazing students. They are kind and thoughtful scholars! Most of my students are English language learners. Some come from bilingual households but most are the first ones in their family to learn English. My students receive free breakfast and lunch at school, along with free uniforms. 80% of the families are unemployed. I also have students that are in foster care. Regardless of what is going on at home, my kindergarten students are eager to learn. They want to be successful and like to come to school. For most of them it is their first time in school and they have not had the benefit of preschool or the experiences that come with going to preschool. I have learned that my students learn best with hands-on learning activities and real-life integrated curriculum that is relatable to my students. Overall, my students are amazing.

My Project

As my students range in personalities and work habits, some of them have a lot more energy than others. Simple seating accommodations can be made with the use of balance balls, wobble chairs, and wobble cushions. These tools can boost student performance. Studies show that children who participate in short bouts of physical activity within the classroom have more on-task behavior, and are more engaged in their learning. Instead of disciplining a child who just has more energy I can provide a positive, nurturing environment by giving these students outlets for the energy to go, while keeping them engaged and on-task!
