My Students

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! I love incorporating centers that meet the needs of all learning styles. They are truly an incredible group, and I'm so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners who are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

Our current listening center is outdated and becoming difficult to use as part of our daily reading centers. It has been in my classroom for many years and is operated by cassette tapes. The tapes are breaking and many are missing. My students have a difficult time rewinding the tapes and flipping to the next side. I'm often pulled away from our guided reading center to fix mishaps, due to outdated technology. The listening center is one of my kindergarteners' favorite activities. Having an updated phonemic awareness listening center would greatly benefit my classroom. Any donations would help me achieve my goal of a better learning environment.
