My Students

I teach an amazing classroom of Kindergarten students at a public school in California. Every student in my class deserves the very best education possible. My class consists of 10 girls and 16 boys. In my classroom there are 5 different languages spoken at home. My 25 kindergarten students are diverse and eager learners.

My Kindergartners love learning new concepts.

They enjoy hands-on learning activities. They are also hardworking and enthusiastic. I always try to make sure that my students are engaged and having the best Kindergarten learning experience. We have a great parent and school community.

My Project

My students will greatly benefit from the KEVA 400 Plank Set which will be used in small groups to promote collaborative building and creativity during Science. These same planks can easily be utilized as counters during Math for number counting, addition, subtraction and even hands on tally marks. The Jumbo Dice in Dice will be such an amazing hands on resource for addition and subtraction games during centers or for early finishers.

Kindergartners learn best by doing!

The 1000 piece Interlocking Unit cubes set are for allowing my little learners to count, build, create, and play and this set will allow all 26 of my learners to work at the same time! The Simple Addition and Subtraction Puzzles and Hands on Learning Number Puzzles will be used for independent and small group learning and can conveniently be used to assist in learning Math facts and numbers while students will surely enjoy making and building these educational puzzles.
