My Students

The twenty-five children in my kindergarten classroom are sweet, loving kids with lots of energy. They are from many diverse backgrounds including immigrants from other countries, students in foster care, and students who experience homelessness. These students need a lot of structure in the classroom in order for them to learn. Routines must be taught and followed in order for the day to run smoothly because a lot of my kindergartners do not get this structure at home since they are constantly moving around.

A lot of my kindergartners have never been in a school setting before and need to be taught exactly how to act appropriately in school.

While this is challenging for some, with the right materials and motivational tools, the children are able to follow a routine and learn.

My Project

I want to create a classroom where my students are learning in a variety of ways. These centers will continue to enhance the student's skills while teaching them to share and work together in small groups. I strive to create an environment where centers are as fun as playing games. Some centers that I wish to make available in my classroom include addition/subtraction work, counting and making tens listening centers, letter/word building with Play-Doh, sight word sentence buildings, as well as many more options.

These centers will provide the opportunity for my students to practice independent thinking and problem solving while I work with small groups to meet students needs at their level.

All activities are fun and hands-on, motivating all learners. When students aren't working independently with the activities, they will work with a teacher to support their needs with hands-on learning with one on one attention. The best way to increase reading and math abilities is to offer more hands on activities. My students have already shown an astonishing interest in centers and this project will only help enrich their experiences. These activities can be used year after year extending the benefits for years to come!
