My Students

My kindergarten students are awesome! I want to make their first year in school fantastic. My students are part of the Vietnamese dual immersion program at my school. My students are second language learners and work hard every day learning English and Vietnamese.

My students love to learn and are happy at school.

I want my students to have the supplies to help them be successful. The

Every day I see my students growing and learning. Watching them gain knowledge and learn new things is truly rewarding!

My Project

It has been over 10 years since I taught kindergarten and I need some items for my class. My class has received a few hand me downs from previous teachers, but we need some new materials for center time.

It's important to reach all learners and giving students different materials to work with gives them the chance to explore while they are learning.

The Lego Sets, Power Clix Frames, Magnetic Ten Frames, and Dominoes are great for math, building, and doing stem projects. Play-Doh is useful for building fine motor skills and creativity. Also, students will be able to express themselves through painting with watercolors and drawing.
