My Students

My kindergarten students love learning and are excited to come to school each day. They are hard workers and try their best to follow directions. This year we have noticed many social, academic, and behavioral delays in our kindergarten students, which we think may be attributed to COVID-19 and subsequent mask-wearing and shutdowns.

Our students have a great need for play.

Through play, children learn social skills, problem solving, and conflict resolution skills.

My Project

Kindergarten students learn best through play! By mimicking what they see adults do, children learn about the world around them, how to solve problems, and how to take care of others and themselves. Students today need play more than ever. They need to take breaks from screens and have time to play with friends and toys that will spark their imaginations.

I have requested a fire station, play kitchen, and dollhouse so my kindergarten students will strengthen social skills, expand oral language skills, and develop creativity and imagination.

These play toys will support students in language, math, and social studies learning standards.

Playing with peers will also help our English language learners learn vocabulary for many objects and appropriate situations in which to use words and phrases. Playing encourages students in peer collaboration, communication, and critical thinking--all essential skills our district highly values.
