My Students

I have recently joined the kindergarten team at a low income school where I have 21 students. The students have diverse backgrounds and have a wide range of ability levels. It is my mission to make their learning environment as magical and cozy as possible.

Kindergartners are a bundle of energy, full of life and excitement, and it is an honor to be their first teacher.

I take pride in my ability to instill a love of learning to them and create a strong foundation for their educational career.

Every child learns differently and at their own pace. Creating an environment that allows for meaningful activities will help each child to reach their own potential as well as help them be successful.

My Project

My students read books on a daily basis in the classroom. The books that are in our classroom library are currently on a bookshelf which makes it hard for students to access.

Students would be more eager to read books that are in smaller bins and can be sorted into different categories.

When we are talking about certain subjects, it can be difficult for students to remember where books are on the bookshelf. They would benefit from having them closer to their eye level.

Students also have cubbies in the classroom where they keep their notebooks and school supplies. At times, it can be difficult for some students to find the materials they need which is why the magazine holders would be helpful. They can easily store their materials in their own cubby and access them more quickly.
