My Students

Our classroom is a place where children can enter happily and develop independence and a positive self-image while playing and learning. Students learn how to be strategic thinkers as they grow to become lifelong readers and writers.

My kindergarten students are energetic, enthusiastic, and excited about experiencing new things.

They love to learn and just can’t wait to become independent readers. Our school is a community that values a safe and healthy environment where all individuals are respected. In our promotion of healthy bodies and minds, my students are learning to collaborate inside and outside the classroom. In order to be developmentally appropriate, my students rotate through hands-on stations practicing literacy learning. As their first educational experience, it is vital for students to love being at school and collaborating with peers.

My Project

Having an inviting, large, round rug will drastically improve my classroom by providing a comfortable area to gather for our Morning Meeting time as well as other instructional times throughout our day. My students will be able to fit comfortably around the outside of a large, round rug for Morning Meeting, learning games and group discussions, as well as allow for plenty of space inside of the rug for other seating options.

Every day begins with our "Morning Meeting." It is one of the most important parts of their school day.

This routine provides a predictable daily structure, which is so valuable in a kindergarten classroom. It is a time when all students are welcomed into the classroom community by greeting one another and learning important social skills such as making eye contact, speaking audibly, and including others.

Students have opportunities to speak and share with one another, as well as play games or sing songs that both build community and reinforce academic skills. Each meeting ends by reading our Morning Message to find out what the new day holds.

A round rug will provide a large, inviting meeting space where everyone can sit or stand comfortably, see well, and participate from wherever they are. Being physically closer will foster more active listening, more engagement, and more empathy for one another as they share ideas, hold conversations, and work together as a whole group.
