My Students

My kindergarten class is made up of a wonderful group of diverse interests, abilities, and learning goals. My kindergartners are learning to read and write, as well as add and subtract! Our class loves to explore the outdoors and learn about their city, too!

My kindergarteners collaborate to build community around what they have in common and their shared experiences in and out of the classroom.

My kindergarteners are part of a small school in a big city! They love learning, exploring, and sharing with others. When they are unable to go to experiences, we like to bring it right to the classroom and make it come alive.

My Project

My kindergarten students love to be able to learn where they are comfortable, but sometimes a table just isn’t the right fit! Having a set of lap desks from Lakeshore Learning will make it possible for my students to be able to focus where they are most comfortable! Little learners love to be able to move closer or sometimes further back, and these lap desks mean they will be able to do just that! They will be able to move and collaborate with their peers or work independently when they need to! It will allow them the independence they desire and foster their love for learning all around our classroom!
