My kindergarten students come to school every day eager and ready to learn. The littlest thing taught to them makes them so happy and they love to share their ideas and creativity with me the minute they walk through the classroom doors.
My students benefit from learning through all types of teaching whether it be worksheets, hands on manipulatives, or projects, their little minds are always ready to explore and learn.
Whether it is learning about letters or number, animals or stories, my students enjoy it all. At home, these children don't get the experiences they get at school, so when they are allowed to explore and learn, they are very grateful and appreciative.
The new kindergarten standards require teachers to create learning through centers. Creating these fun, creative centers is very time consuming and requires a lot of printing out of pictures, words, etc in order to make learning intriguing. The schools policy is, in order to receive copies, you must put in for them two days in advance. However, in kindergarten, when an idea sparks, two days is a very long time to have the children wait. By having my own printer with extra ink, I can create fun centers instantly and even teach the students how to help create these centers by having an actual printer attached to the classroom computer.
