My Students

Laughing, giggling and happy, our children are bright and inquisitive.

Forty percent of our new students arrive without knowing any English.

Our students need a wide variety of English language support. Kindergarten is often their very first school experience. The students spend more awake hours at school than they do at home. The learning areas in my classroom are intentionally planned to build learning stamina. As the year progresses, children spend longer periods of time completing differentiated activities in classroom learning areas.

Learning centers are an important way for small groups of children to complete academic tasks, work on individualized and challenging projects and improve social and emotional skills.

The current seating in our Library and Writing centers is uncomfortable. We need flexible and comfortable seating for our classroom library and writing areas. An inviting learning center is important for Kindergarten children. Any way to extend the learning experience that builds academic endurance is important.

My Project

All Kindergarten students are on the path to being life long readers. Flexible seating will help build stamina in our Kindergarten students that are beginning to read. If children are comfortable when engaging in reading and writing materials they will stay longer in the learning area.

The rocking stools will keep them moving and more focused!

Kindergarten students have a lot of energy! They do not like to sit for long periods of time.The small lap desks will create individual spaces for children to work while sitting on the floor. This will promote stamina! My students work best in flexible environments.
