My Students

I teach kindergarten in a Title I school in Virginia. Student ages range between five and six years old. My classroom is a very inclusive, interactive environment which accommodates a wide demographic of children to include English Language Learners. Each child comes in with his or her own unique personality and skill set, which we strive to build upon in order to help our students be kind, encouraging members of all communities they are a part of. These students are excited to come to school each day, and can not wait to learn something new!

My Project

The Lakeshore tools are great resources for students. Through hands-on activities, students are able to work on rhyme, comprehension, sight words, sentence structure, writing, and much more. Our class was provided the opportunity to utilize many of these tools in our room last year and students were able to work independently, strengthen skills, and take pride in their work. Fine motor skills are strengthened through activities like the placement of word cubes and circles, writing words out, and matching letters to complete words and sentences. Students retain more work when activities prove to be engaging and exciting for the students, and the Lakeshore activities definitely provide a fun learning experience!
