Although I have worked in a variety of schools and classrooms, this is my first year with my own classroom and I could not be more thankful for the class I have. In a kindergarten classroom with 30 kids, chaos would be expected. However, every single one of the students in this class comes in every day and does their best to contribute to the classroom community.
Every day these kindergartners make their classroom thrive.
They apply themselves to every learning opportunity and love getting to explore new ideas and concepts. Our educational games are one of their favorite parts as they use their brains and their hands to develop skills and my goal is to provide them with as many learning opportunities as possible.
In kindergarten, our main goal is supporting these students in developing their independence as learners. In my classroom, I have worked to create an environment for the students where they can learn through the exploration of materials. In math, for example, we have blocks, Legos, counting cubes, and a variety of games. For reading, we have a developed library but I am looking to get materials, that paired with our library, will help the students build their reading confidence.
Resources like whisper phones and flexible seating help students feel comfortable reading and practicing words and sounds they may not know.
I want to make reading time in our classroom a kindergarten favorite. With the materials from this DonorsChoose project, our kindergarten classroom will work on building our independent reading and problem-solving skills. Skills that transfer from kindergarten throughout the rest of life.
