My Students

The twenty-five children in my kindergarten classroom are sweet, loving kids with lots of energy. They are from many diverse backgrounds including immigrants from other countries, students in foster care, and students who experience homelessness. These students need a lot of structure in the classroom in order for them to learn. Routines must be taught and followed in order for the day to run smoothly because a lot of my kindergarteners do not get this structure at home since they are constantly moving around.

A lot of my kindergartners have never been in a school setting before and need to be taught exactly how to act appropriately in school.

While this is challenging for some, with the right materials and motivational tools, the children are able to follow a routine and learn.

My Project

In kindergarten colors are extremely important! I try to make as much as I can in my classroom color coded but that is hard without the right supplies.

With colored paper and color ink, I can focus on teaching kindergartners their colors and color coding their work.

In addition to color coding their work, bright colored card stock is important for different projects. I love doing art projects with the student's to help decorate the classroom and hallway. Students get very excited about these projects, but without the right materials it is very difficult. Color ink and bright color paper will allow these projects to happen.

I also could use an organizer for the paper I will get! With a paper organizer, I will be able to easily see what colors I need and what I need to replace.

Thank you so much for supporting my students and helping me create a colorful classroom.
