My Students

My kindergartners attend a K-5 elementary school on the Hawaiian island of Maui. We are a culturally diverse island community with a mix of Hawaiian, Filipino, Caucasian, Korean, Japanese, Micronesian, and Hispanic students.

"Kindergarten children are confident in spirit, infinite in resources, and eager to learn--everything is still possible." This quote by Robert Fulghum perfectly sums up my students.

Many of them still need to wiggle, dance, sing, and play. These actions do not mean my kinders are not learning!

I strive to teach my students in a developmentally appropriate way. For many of my kiddos, this means integrating music, art, movement, and play into our daily curriculum and routines.

My Project

My students love to explore and extend their learning through the arts. Using art as an authentic assessment is just what my kinders need to show their learning. In order to do that, they need supplies such as construction paper, paint, markers, scissors, and glue. Instead of asking my students questions about a story we just read, art allows them to paint a picture about the main characters. Rather than giving them a test to see if they know their shapes, construction paper and scissors allows them to cut out their own shapes in a tactile and hands-on way.

Art integration allows for an alternative way of teaching and learning that is fun and enjoyable for teacher and students alike!
