My Students

I love their enthusiasm for learning and the the wonderful innocence of their very being! They are curious and creative and so ready to jump into the world of learning!! Kindergartners are so caring of one another and have the ability to make me laugh daily. I am so amazed at the growth that takes place in this very first year of school as they learn their ABCs and letter sounds, counting to 120, and writing their first and last names. The very foundation of their education begins in the Kindergarten classroom and I am so very privileged to be a part of that!

My Project

I am so excited to give my students the tools they need to continue to grow in their STEAM skills and understanding! I will be adding to our STEAM bins and Math Centers with each of the products for my students to use on a daily rotating basis.

What a wonderful opportunity at this young age of education to instill in my learners the ability and longing to make and create wonderful projects thru STEAM.

The materials we'd like to have here are wonderful tools with which each of my students can stretch their imaginations into the young scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians of the future.

At the end of the school year we have a STEAM DAY and its my hope that we can share all of our creations and imaginations with the rest of our school!
