My Students

My wonderful kindergartners are between the ages of 5 and 7. For many of them, this is the first time they have entered a classroom, picked up a book, or explored music, art, and the sciences. They come to school with smiles on their faces and an eagerness to learn, but they also come from very different backgrounds.

Many of my students live in poverty, many are learning English as a second language, and many are immigrants and refugees from other countries.

Even so, my students come to school willing to take chances and grow while teaching their teacher a thing or two about how to better meet the needs of her students. They also show her how to view each day with open eyes and an open mind.

My Project

Kindergarten is about using hands on materials to help young students learn. It is these hands on materials that help students develop understanding of abstract ideas. In math, unifix cubes and teddy bears can help students understand how to compose and decompose teen numbers. In science, magnets and flashlights help students to understand pull and shadows. The list goes on and on with how hands on materials can teach young students valuable lessons. These valuable hands on materials take up a lot of space and due to a lack of space they usually are put in the back room until needed.

Having these materials out in the classroom will allow daily use of these materials.

The storage boxes and lids will allow for these materials to be out in plain sight and the students would be able to grab them on their own. Everything will be neatly kept in their own box meaning no more lost materials. Students can see the materials and grab them when needed, without teacher assistance. The more students use these materials the more knowledge is gained.
