My Students

Kindergarten lays the solid foundation necessary for successful learning in other grades. My 17 kindergarten students yearn to learn!

Aloha from the beautiful state of Hawaii where we seek to empower our students through education!

Our school is located in a predominantly rural, low-income neighborhood with a considerable portion of the children being of native Hawaiian and/or Pacific Island ancestry. With the financial challenges impacting their lives, my students do not always come to school with readiness skills. More importantly, my students have diverse learning styles. Although they may not have the materials needed or a foundation of early learning experiences, they do possess a strong desire to learn!

My Project

Toot! Toot! I just attended a workshop which taught me how to integrate science, technology, engineering, art, and math within our learning time! One of the featured items was a LEGO Steam Park set. I had the opportunity to explore this exciting material and plan lessons based around it.

I want my to move my kindergarten students Full Steam Ahead by guiding student inquiry and dialogue using this LEGO Steam Park set.

This set will also help me develop my students' critical thinking skills as they work collaboratively to develop the park. Be the steam that ignites my students' learning!
