My Students

My students are happy, enthusiastic and ready to take off! My students come to kindergarten with a wide variety of backgrounds and expectations. Some are so nervous, some are so excited! But all of them are learning that school is a place to experience more than they ever have before! My students crave the opportunity to create, solve, build, pretend, and grow!

My students are inspired by every new opportunity that I can present to them.

They run into school each day anxious to see what the day holds. Now to keep up with their curiosity!

My Project

My students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have an even wider range of interests. They often have crucial foundational skills lacking. They are sometimes hesitant and not so sure that they are going to like school.

My job is to capture my students’ interest, gain their trust, and help them be excited to come to school!

Only then can we make the magic that happens in this year of incredible learning and growth! There is nothing more exciting than the joy on their faces when they are learning something new!

Our class loves to build and create, but our supplies are old, ratty, and minimal. New art supplies such as Messy Mats, Dot Art Painters, Pom-Poms and Double Space Dryin Rack will spark our creativity and help us dry things properly. Our new creative building options, Soft Blocks, Magformers, Magna-Tiles, Ramps and Balls Exploration and storage box, the Magnetic Pattern Block Builders, and Clear-View Marble Run will make a huge difference giving us variety and enough to go around! Our new math materials, Sequencing Puzzles, Ten Frames and Giant Ten Frames Dice, Count and Links, Write and Wipe Student Number Lines, and Learn to Count! Dough Mats and dough will add excitement to our math stations!

Our new phonics materials, Double-Sided Magnetic Write and Wipe Boards, CVC Word Work Center, Write and Wipe Markers, Touch and Read CVC Word Match, Giant Alphabet Beads, Alphabet Dough Stampers, Giant Sand Timers, and Pocket Chart will add so much to our word work and writing stations! The students will be so excited to dig in and stretch their minds!

Thank you for helping our days be filled with learning and joy!
