My Students

I have the wonderful opportunity to work with bilingual Kindergartners at a Title I school. My students are always excited to learn about the world around them. Many of my students do not have the essential materials at home to continue their learning.

Kindergarten is a time where play and learning occur simultaneously on a ongoing basis.

I would love to provide a classroom where my students can broaden their knowledge, especially with hands-on activities. Providing each student with various tools to help them achieve their full potential would be a great start to their success.

My Project

What's a better way to build a student’s imagination than with an amazing book? My students will love to see our classroom library expand with new books ready for them to explore. Students will be able to take books home to complete their daily reading at home as well as reading in the classroom. I know my students can't wait to get new headphones for the listening center, many of ours are slowly breaking due to constant use.

Help prompt my students creativity with engaging interactive activities during their centers!

Help my students to a great start by bringing new letters to the phonics centers that will help my students learn how to spell and build worlds. Providing a variety form of letter building will help my students who are more tactile and learn better than the traditional pencil and paper method.

Adding sensory items to my science center will expand my students’ knowledge of observations. My students get so much trill in the science center where they can use their senses to learn about the world around them. I can't wait for my students to get great materials to use during their centers and whole group activities.
