My Students

I teach some of the most inquisitive kindergarteners ever. They are so excited about learning and love everything about school. They are eager to explore the world around them by using all of their senses.

My students love to learn new math, science and literacy skills daily!

Their faces light up with excitement when they see a previously learned concept in action during their independent learning and center time. Watching them have light bulb moments where everything clicks make it all worth it. My students learn best through playing and applying what they have learned through creative, hands on activities and social interactions with their kindergarten-age peers.

Children learn by doing, playing, and trying out their learning!

My Project

Kindergarten students learn best when they are actively engaged and doing. This project based learning centers around math, science, STEM, and early learning activities to provide students with opportunities for hands-on and exploratory learning.

Sinking and Floating is one of our science standards on properties of matter.

The sinking and floating STEM materials will be used as project based, hands on learning so that students can test, explore, and draw conclusions on why certain items sink and others float. The floating bubbles will also be used as an independent, hands on learning center.

The hands on number, alphabet locks, and alphabet robots will be used as independent learning stations in our block and STEM center and will be used to give students independent, hands on learning during their individual and group lessons.
