My Students

My classroom is BUSY, lots of hands on learning taking place in our room. Kindergarten is a place like none other, it's magical, energized,full of sparks and fireworks!

My Kindergarten children are AMAZING!

Full of life, ready and eager to learn each and every day. They are my heart, the highlight of each day I go to school. My students adore building! I think I have some future architects in this class! My school is bright, energetic, full of teachers and students making the most of each day. We are teachers that teach and we have students that learn. It's exciting to be a teacher at my school. We are making a difference in our future!

My Project

My students will be able to use the materials I am asking for daily during center time. The variety of gear sets that I have asked for will be intriguing to these children. With these gears they will be able to build, design, construct and analyze where they are going and how. The building resources I have in my room presently are few, but the few I have are used each and every day. My students are going to be so excited when new builders and gears come into their classroom. I can just see them now giggling and waiting for them to be passed out.

Every project makes a difference, every child makes a difference!

These gears will make a huge difference with my students because they are geared themselves to being the very best kindergarteners ever. They love asking questions, love finding answers and these gears will help them solve the ideas in their minds and answer their own questions through imaginative and inquisitive play during center time.
