My Students

Over 50 percent of the families in our school qualify for free or reduced lunch. Our class is very diverse in their cultures and their abilities. Some of the students in​ our class are very social, while others are not so sure about being in a classroom all day. Kindergarteners are little sponges and are eager to learn. They learn best by exploring with their hands, minds, and interactions with different materials. I would like to give them the love of learning by having a variety of hands-on materials for them to explore different reading and math skills.

My Project

The materials will help my students learn reading and math skills through hands-on experiences. The materials will be used in a variety of ways. They will be used while students are working at centers. They will also be placed on shelves to be used during free-choice time. The materials can be used for intervention and will be very useful to help differentiate learning. They are self-explanatory for volunteers to use to work with students. The students will love learning from and exploring different concepts of reading and math with these materials. They will be very thankful to have so many different materials to learn from.
