My Students

Many of the kindergartners who I teach come low income families in the heart of the city. Some of them are behind their peers in academics. For some, this is their first school experience. They have limited access to some resources at home and at school that will help them be successful. Our school has very little technology.

It is important to have access to tools that can help my students catch up and keep up with their grade level peers.

My students are some of the youngest learners who are very excited about learning! I have 25 kindergartners who I will be taking to first grade! They love learning new things and using new tools as this motivates them. My school focuses on building communities of learners who are engaged in their learning and I support this mission by exposing my students to resources and experiences.

My Project

These materials will help my students as they explore concepts on their own and practice them. Young children learn best through hands on and play activities! They learn to connect skills they are learning by moving and manipulating pieces to help them conceptualize abstract concepts! My students love to work with their hands! They love to bring over their work manipulatives and demonstrate skills. This is more fun and engaging than worksheets! These materials fit well in our play-based learning model! They think learning is a game when they use manipulatives which increases their focus and interest. An added bonus is that it's fun to play and learn!
