My Students

I have the honor to teach 22 amazing little hearts and minds. My students are in Kindergarten and we live in the great state of Michigan.

Kindergarten is one of the very best grades to teach because my students are all so eager and willing to learn.

They love school and love their teacher. Kindergarten is the best!

Kindergarten has changed so much in the past five years as we have gone from half-day, every other day, Kindergarten to all day, every day, Kindergarten. My students are being asked so much more than ever before, but they always rise to the occasion and task. One of my favorite parts about teaching Kindergarten is seeing the growth my students make in only one short year.

My Project

We are requesting soft eats, balance ball seats, a jumbo timer, alphabet dough and alphabet mystery box. Students love to have choice and teachers can create this opportunity through flexible seating. In Kindergarten, we are on the floor a lot and we have many opportunities to sit on the floor. A few of the seats I would like to buy with this project are seats that make sitting on the ground much more comfortable. Flexible seating allows students who may struggle with attention to be able to focus more as the seats allow for movement.

I also included some engaging language arts and math manipulatives too.

We love to use hands-on learning in the classroom and we can do this with the hands-on activities. The supplies will increase my students early language skills and early math concept skills.
