My Students

My students walk into the classroom everyday, ready to learn, they are energetic four year old students who have developed a love for learning. They come to school with an energetic, positive attitude on a daily basis. Everyday before we start instruction, I ask my students, "How did you come to school today?!" and they respond, "Ready to learn!"

I am the only Transitional Kindergarten class in the school and the students in my classroom are the youngest learners on campus, this is my students' first experience in a structured school setting.

I want them to develop a deep love for learning and have the opportunity to use tools that will enhance their learning experience and set them up with a positive education foundation so they can be successful throughout their academic career.

My Project

Transitional Kindergarten is most students' first experience with school; this is the time to make them fall in love with reading and math. As a result, I am requesting Dot Art Markers for my class and Play Doh. These tools give my TK students the hands-on power to excel in literacy and math instruction.

A hands-on approach with Dot Art Markers and Play Doh exposes students to literacy and math while setting a sturdy foundation for a child's future love of these subjects, and their educational career.

Play Doh and Dot Art Markers will enhance students' learning by giving them a concrete manipulative to comprehend literacy and math subjects, such as letter recognition, numeracy, and one to one correspondence.

In conclusion, as a teacher I have intensive training in literacy and math instruction. However, I need your help enhancing the students' academic learning experience with Dot Art Markers and Play Doh. Thank you for making this happen for my little TK learners!
