My classroom consists of some incredible kindergartners that have successfully overcome adversity and obstacles their whole lives!
The majority of my sweet students are 1st or 2nd generation Americans.Many come from non-English speaking households.
All of them come from low income families. These students lack a foundation of experiences that we might take for granted - like going to Pre-K or visiting a zoo - foundational experiences that would help them be successful.
These amazing kiddos are working so hard to acquire a new language, while acclimating to a new culture, and becoming bright young men and women.
These ready made centers in the academic areas of literacy, numeracy, and science will allow little hands to manipulate and experience learning while little minds grow curious and excited. These centers can be independently completed by students at their own pace. This independence encourages students to take ownership of their own learning while freeing up the teacher to teach students through intensive, individualized, intervention small group.
These kits can be shared across the grade level - reaching more than 100 students this year alone.
These sturdy kits will last for years and positively impact an untold number of young learners. While these kits are geared toward kindergartners, I see no reason why they could not be shared with struggling 1st graders as well!
