My Students

I have 27 kiddos in my Kindergarten class who are eager to learn. They come from an urban setting. Many of my students are coming to school with no previous education. My students all come from different ethnic backgrounds. Some of my students speak different languages.

My students come to school eager to learn and build relationships with those around them.

My goal is to make our classroom feel like a home for students to learn every day. With our extended school day, students are in the classroom the majority of their day.

My Project

A lot of my students have not been to preschool and are entering school for the very first time. They need a lot of hands on activities to help them with their learning. Paper, pencil and workbooks are not what my student need in order to learn. Some are sensory learners and need hands on activities to help them with their understanding of the basic foundational skills taught.

These manipulatives will help them learn their upper and lowercase letters and numbers.

It will allow them to not only see the letters and numbers visually but allow them to trace and feel using different sensory techniques all while making learning fun!
