My Students

Each year my class consists of 22 five and six year olds, most of which are from Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and South America. They are beautifully diverse and oh so eager to learn. These children don't always have the experiences other children have and I want to give my students every opportunity to have fun and learn.

Since many students are English Language Learners, they must both master academic content and a new language.

This means it is critical that every moment of the day supports deep conversations and academic language as well as content standards.

My Project

In this ever changing world, our curriculum standards are becoming more vigorous and we teachers are finding that more is expected from our little ones.

I am wanting to give my students what they need to become successful writers, but in a way that is fun and hands-on!

They are kids and kids learn best through play! Using activities, such as Trace & Write Story Stencils and Magnetic Story Boards with markers, are perfect for inspiring my beginning writers and giving them opportunities for creative independence.

Please help to make a difference my my students' lives! We appreciate anything that you are able to give!
