My Students

We are a Transitional Kindergarten class in Southern California. Transitional Kindergarten students are beginning their educational journey and they have an excitement for the school that makes teaching them a complete joy! Our physical classroom is filled with learning tools that they use daily such as puzzles, games, and art supplies. I would like to try to give them a similar learning environment online.

Currently my students are learning online via lessons I record on YouTube and live teaching meetings on Zoom.

Our classroom is in a low-income area where many children do not have access to educational toys and activities. At school, I can provide those resources for them but at home, I do not have access to all of my teaching tools. By providing the requested items, I will be able to create fun and engaging live and prerecorded video lessons for my students.

My Project

March 13th seemed like any normal school day, by that evening, however, our school year had changed completely! We would not be returning to campus for the rest of the year and would transition to distance learning. My students are used to our classroom that is filled with learning games and activities that they do not have access to at home. With the rhyming activities I have requested, I will be able to play learning games virtually with my students, and having the packs of construction paper will allow me to create instructional art videos that I will send to them to try at home. By providing these requested tools, I will be able to interact with them through video lessons in a way that is similar to our in-person lessons and hopefully, they will end the school year with the same passion for learning that they had when we began.
