My Students

My students are a group of kindergarteners, ages 5 and 6, in Rhode Island. The students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I ask them, "Who is the best kindergarten class?" and they reply, "We are!" I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.

These kids are filled with enthusiasm and love to play and learn.

At this age, my students are like little sponges soaking up every bit of information they see and hear, and I want to provide them with hands-on experiences and help develop their love for learning.

I want my students to have everything they deserve and hope you all can help!

My Project

Paper pencil practice is great and present in all classrooms but it can be very boring and repetitive. I would love to make math practice hands-on and fun. This VersaTile classroom kit would do just that!

VersaTiles would bring learning alive and provide a different modality for my students to practice and review skills and concepts previously learned in class.

These VersaTiles would be excellent for small group instruction, remediation, or even a math learning center. After learning a concept in class student coudl then practice and show their learning using a VersaTiles activity. Plus VersaTiles are self checking which helps make them independent.
