My Students

Do you remember your Kindergarten classroom? Things have changed over the years but Kinder kids still love to learn with touching and moving things around. We need new games to help engage our young learners!

I have twenty-four amazing kids in my Kindergarten class.

This is a public school from a small town in Southern California. Students come from diverse backgrounds, but all have a yearning for learning and a desire to learn new things. They are an upbeat wonderful group of students that I'm grateful that I get to work with each day.

My Project

These are all hands-on games that will be used in our classroom everyday. These games will help them build their phonemic awareness which will help them on the path to become amazing readers and writers. These resources will be loved by not just this class but for classes to come!

This project is so important to me because I believe that we need to engage and inspire students with new updated materials in order to truly prepare them to become great readers and writers.
