My Students

My students are a energetic and joyful group of kindergartners. They come to school each day eager to learn and achieve the goals they have set for themselves. They are becoming more responsible and independent as the year progresses.

Our class is made up of a diverse group of children, in which each individual student makes their own special contribution to the classroom.

The students love the freedom of exploration and of learning through doing. They work together and support each other regularly. It feels like a family environment in our class!

My Project

Kindergartners learn and work best when they have the freedom to move around and feel comfortable. Flexible options such as lap desks and floor cushions allow students to choose the seating in which they will feel most at ease. Comfy kids are more ready to learn!

Choice within the classroom makes students better leaders of their own learning.

I have seen my students make decisions for themselves and take ownership and pride in their own learning. Whether working individually on reading, writing, or math, or collaborating with their peers, my students not only enjoy, but often require their own place to be productive.

We would all love to have more choices available to us in our working classroom.
