My Students

My kindergartners are the reason I love going to work every day. They are inquisitive, caring, and hard workers. They come in ready to learn, not only academics but valuable lifelong social skills.

My students engage in many activities throughout the day in my classroom.

My students seem to learn best when we are doing theme-based learning that integrates play and hands-on learning. Each student learns best in different ways so having a range of stations and materials in my room helps me meet all my students' needs.

My Project

When my kindergarten students come to school in September they are all ready to learn at different levels. For some students, this is their first time in school and for others, they are already comfortable being at school.

When my kids have what they need to learn, they will explore and learn in a hands-on way.

My students can use the Montessori Educational Toys, the Vigeiya Numbers Educational Toys, and the STEM Apple Factory to learn as they explore our environment. They can use the Letters, Numbers & Shapes Giant Stencil Box to start to understand math and literacy concepts. The Sterilite boxes will help us organize our environment so my students can access the materials. Thanks for helping my students stay busy and engaged in my classroom!
