Mrs. Atherton from Louisville KY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Talk! Social-Emotional Learning With Littles

Help me give my students the words they need to problem solve! Small problems quickly become BIG problems when they don't know how to cope or talk about their feelings. These books will teach them great lessons!

My Students

FUN! FABULOUS! And FIVE! That's what Room 38 is full of! My students are amazing children who walk in ready to learn every day. They come from a variety of backgrounds but work together to build a community of learners in the most exciting ways. Our classroom is a pretty special place!

We have a lot of personality in our class!

A class of Kindergartners is pretty hard to beat! Our school is filled with families from all sorts of socioeconomic backgrounds but we do not get a lot of district financial support to aid in implementing fresh or innovative ideas that require any kind of extra funds. With over 100,000 students in our district and 85 elementary schools, money can be sparse.

My Project

EVERYTHING in Kindergarten is amazing and BIG! Big smiles! Big ideas! Big fun! Even problems can become BIG when they do not know how to deal with them. We start each day with a morning meeting and chant our growth mindset for the week. It is such a powerful way to start our day, reminding us of all the possibilities ahead of us!

The heart of our morning meeting teaches my kinders to be good human beings through great literature.

Learning is possible only after students' social and emotional needs have been met. Once those needs are met, anything is possible...especially BIG achievements!
