My Students

I am currently teaching 28 bilingual kindergarten students. They speak Cantonese. We are a neighborhood school. We serve 86% bilingual students in our school. There are approximately 1400 students in our school. My students love activities on the rug. It allows them to move freely while working with a peer or independently. They are eager to learn and explore. They walk into school with excitements everyday. Creating a safe environment for students is essential in a nurturing and exciting classroom.

My Project

These organizing bins will help the classroom to reorganize learning materials in the classroom. Students will be able to locate their books and center materials with ease. It allows us to maximize our instruction and learning because the bins with labels make cleaning up time easier than ever! My students love to work on the cards during their Daily 5. We use ziploc bags to organize cards. However, the bags don't last long and students always mixed up cards of different activities. It made our cleaning up time much longer than it should. With these bins, we can keep all cards and books in place!
