My Students

Mr. Knight’s Kindergarten Class

This is my first year teaching and I have landed my dream grade level right out of the gate.

I work at an art based charter school which brings a unique group of students. These kids come from all walks of life and experiences. My students are a wonderful blend of little humans and they enrich my life each day.

One of the things that I enjoy about this age group is their willingness to keep trying. I always use the line, “I can do hard things”. I use it when I make mistakes or am trying to learn something new, like teaching. After only a few weeks of school many of my students use this line when struggling to learn a new concept. Their can do spirit is contagious. This feeling has played a big part I our classroom culture and community. I cannot wait to see what the rest of my first year brings.

My Project

As a first year teacher, I am still putting together my classroom supplies. The items I have chosen will benefit in my center bases learning. With half day kindergarten time if limited. I want to be able to provide meaningful lesson and centers in my short blocks of time. I use my center time to help the students learn to work and learn independently.

In kindergarten we are focusing heavily on phonemic awareness and number sense.

The phonemic awareness set I chose will help them learn these concepts in a fun and interactive way. The early math set I chose will also help them learn their numbers and gain a stronger understanding of number sense. Giving the students ownership of their own learning is a powerful thing and I feel these items will help with those goals.
