My Students

This is the first year that we have had three rounds of full-day kindergarten at our school (no more half-day)! Our students often come to us with little experience interacting with other children their own age. I am so excited to have the opportunity to meet their varying needs in a full day. This full-day time allows us to put choice and play time back into the kindergarten schedule!

I am so excited to be able to have more time with students to meet their social and emotional needs as well as their academic needs this year!

We have many students who need stability and guidance at our school. They all need some extra love and warmth when they enter our room. We are working hard to build a special community that will carry them through all of the years of school (and life) they have ahead.

My Project

Our classroom needs flexible seating options to help students stay focused and engaged during reading, writing, and math. We will have stools, Wobble seats, and soft seats. All of the seating options I've selected are easy to wipe clean. This will help keep our room sanitary and healthy for our students.

Students will be able to pick the seating and location in the room that best supports their learning.

The added options will help students take ownership of their learning throughout the day. It will also give students personal space which will minimize distraction during independent learning times and reduce conflict during cooperative learning times.
