My Students

In our technological world, many students are not introduced to handwriting until they enter a formal education program in kindergarten. Our youngest students need constant practice in basic letter and number formation.

Our school is made up of very diverse learners and we utilize an amazing instructional math program that teaches our kindergarten students conceptual math and provides them many different, engaging learning opportunities.

With math instruction at the primary level constantly evolving, many of our families have misconceptions of how we teach math to our youngest learners.

Being an urban school with approximately 65% free/reduced lunch, our students often can only provide a limited number of school supplies.

My Project

Our number corner program introduces our kindergarteners to proper number formation early in the school year through poetry and song. The students then have numerous opportunities in learning centers to practice this skill.

With the use of plastic dry erase sleeves and wipe off markers, our teachers can provide these opportunities while teaching our youngest students to use resources wisely.

The teachers will be able to place one copy of the numeral practice pages from our math program into these sleeves for students to repeatedly practice in their math learning centers.

We are finding in our building, that our students who are involved in extra intervention in both reading and math, have difficulty with basic handwriting and are forming numbers and letters incorrectly. It is so much more difficult to correct this issue as students get older. Therefore, we would like to prevent this problem in our kindergarten classes.
