My Students

Our district strives to provide a personalized learning environment for each of our students. We have one elementary in our district that serves over 700 students, Junior Kindergarten-5th grade. It is important for my young learners to start building a strong foundation in literacy, science, and mathematics during their kindergarten year. In my classroom I foster an atmosphere where my children are challenged at their individual level and wanting to learn more.

My children are eager to learn through our hands-on learning activities!

To help challenge each child at their level, I work with small groups throughout the day for literacy and math. Our weekly science experiments help answer many questions children have about the world around them. Many of our daily activities require a lot of sturdy manipulatives and a classroom that's organized into centers. My students love moving around the room and collaborating on different projects. They enjoy sharing their knowledge with each other!

My Project

Centers are a daily activity in our classroom and small groups occur throughout the day. This easel center will provide a space for my learners to work independently or in partnerships. The storage underneath the easels will make it easy to layout the materials they will be experimenting with for science. It will also serve as our art center in the afternoons where I can easily store supplies for them to create with in the trays. The easel center will allow my students to easily feel successful as they are able to independently complete tasks and center activities with the great storage it has built in the bottom and easel surface on the top. By having this easel center I can prepare all materials ahead of time and thus my learners will spend more of our class time learning, exploring, and creating.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student engagement, you will ultimately help to increase their love for learning about the world around them.

My young learners will be able to simply focus on the materials at hand, and feel more successful for doing it on their own. Plus, working this closely to another group or peer will increase opportunities for them to help each other out and create a sense of community.
