My Students

I get the pleasure of teaching 26 of the most inquisitive, enthusiastic, energetic and hard-working kiddos around. Most of my students started this year in school barely knowing how to count, hold a pencil or even speak English and now, soon they'll be writing paragraphs, adding and subtracting and reading like rockstars! My kiddos will work hard this year to develop a growth mindset, which means they never give up, even when things get tricky! They can’t do that YET!

My Project

Most kids get to play games at home, but many of my kiddos have never rolled a die and moved a pawn through a game board ... But they will be able to now! Playing games like Hi Ho Cherry-o and Candyland teach kids counting skills. We can play many other games for math and even reading that require students to cross things off, draw or write words. The dry erase pockets make these games reusable and able to be played again and again. We can use Legos for many games as well. We use Legos to count and build towers which we use to compare numbers, make patterns and even to measure. Games are a great way to teach teamwork, taking turns, being a good sport and how to follow rules all while having fun and working on fine motor skills. Some of the best learning happens “accidentally” while playing games. I’ll use these games to target certain learning objectives in small groups but also have them available for free time and rainy days! Kindergarten is a time of tremendous learning, but it should also be a time of tremendous fun!
