My Students

For some of my Kindergarteners, this is their first time in school. For this reason we use many hands on activities and manipulatives. My students are creative and curious. They are excited about learning and enjoy coming to school. They are always very busy and active. There are many different, much needed, items to helps them grow , keep them engaged and interested.

My students learn in many ways and I like to create things for them to engage their interests and help them learn, grow and be successful.

I love watching my students engage with each other and develop new friendships. It is exciting to help them excel emotionally and academically.

My Project

In our classroom we do a lot of hands on and interactive activities to build academic skills and life skills. The tools that have been selected for this project include manipulatives for cognitive instructional guidance and tools for numbers operations. It is important to me that I provide easy access and availability to my students to have all of these tools to help them in their learning experience. Also, in our classroom we utilize interactive play to enhance the experience in learning to sharing, life skills, helping each other, and enjoying their environment with their peers. Their success is important to me and I will do whatever I can to achieve that.
