My Students

I teach a classroom of 5-6 year olds, who are so excited to learn new things. My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! I teach using Learning Stations for Reading and Math and it is my students favorite part of the day! Students are learning without even realizing they are learning. Learning stations are fun engaging and teaches lots of social skills.

My Project

Learning letter names and sounds in kindergarten is a critical step to reading success. Some students have a very difficult time with this ad require repeated practice.

If the practice time is fun and engaging, students will be excited about learning during skill group rotations.

They will stay focused and will have much higher rates of success. Using games and manipulatives will help keep them on task and excited about learning. Students will use the games and manipulatives to master all the letters and sounds of the alphabet. They will also use the letters to build CVC words to begin reading words.
