My Students

My students are little scholars! Many of my students do not have access to rich learning experiences outside of the school day which makes it especially important to enhance their kindergarten experience through lively hands-on learning! They often don't have the same resources as students in surrounding schools but they do have the same zest for learning.

My goal is to create an environment that ignites a love for learning where students can explore, make connections, and achieve success through the learning process.

My Project

My students need hands-on learning experiences that not only develop literacy skills but also ensure that they are excited about learning. I strive to maximize the learning experience by appealing to various learning preferences, interests, and the senses!

Hands-on learning is proven to lead to engagement and growth.

I am requesting a sensory table which incorporates water, sand and more which allow students to play while learning (or learn while playing)!

Our youngest learners are most successful when they are able to explore, build, and inquire throughout the school day. Sensory activities provide a balance to our technology-rich world and keep kids hands-on!
