I am a kindergarten teacher in a new building with a diverse class, students from our local Houston area, as well as students from the Katrina Hurricane. Conversation and expressing oneself is powerful when students feel comfortable in doing so. I would like to promote the children's ability to communicate, by adding some extra hands-on activities for the students to manipulate. I would like to have multicultural puppets, alphabet puppets and things for centers, just to name a few. These things will allow students to develop storytelling skills and relate to real life experiences. The students will be sooooo excited about learning with these new activities to encourage their communication! Thank You,

Mrs. M.
Grades PreK-2
Nearly all students from low‑income households
