My Students

My Kindergarten students amaze me as they persevere through hardships. Most of my students come from low income households.

As a Kindergarten teacher, I want to provide a fun, safe, and enjoyable learning environment.

Our school is a Title One school needing your support. I would like to provide hands on materials which will help engage my students in all subjects. I like to provide a wonderful, safe and engaging learning environment for my students.

My students are all unique individuals who bring a smile each day to me, their classmates and their community. They smile despite their own hardships. My students are resilient and work hard to persevere through difficult struggles.

My Project

My students will enjoy using the portable cd players to listen to stories independently. Listening to stories will help students as they are learning to read.

Each day, my students will use the Rekenreks to manipulate to gain number sense.

Rekenreks allow students to manipulate beads to show a number in a variety of ways. This math tool is a great way for students to do hands on learning.

All students love to build and create with building toys. All of the students will enjoy building with the Playstiks and Brain Flakes to design and create exciting products.

Providing hands-on experiences for my students allows them to stay engaged.
