My Students

My classroom is packed full of fun, movement, energy, and growing young minds!

My Kindergartners are thrilling and eager to learn.

They excite me every day as I watch them learn and grow. When you're five years old, the world around you is full of new and exciting things. Some of my students haven't yet discovered the wonders of the world and need a plethora of experiences to grow into the best citizens they can be!

My students come from a very diverse background. The majority of our students qualify for free and reduced rate lunch and often times don't have access to certain resources unless they are at school. My goal every day is to provide my students with as many opportunities as possible while pushing them to exceed our Kindergarten standards. My favorite way to do this is through engaging, exciting, activities that make learning fun!

My Project

Can you imagine being in kindergarten and learning how to put your amazing thoughts on paper? Sometimes this task can be overwhelming for young learners and this project will give my students resources to help them gain confidence and get excited about their writing.

My students have so many wonderful ideas and stories to share and these materials will allow them to make their writing come alive!

The markers, crayons, and Smencils will help my kinders create beautiful pictures to enhance their writing. The journals will be a great tool for my students to start new stories and help them get into good writing habits. The IPAD will be such an asset to my students as they work with small groups or partners to listen to good stories and use learning apps to create strong sentences.

Having these new materials will really give my students the push they need to take their writing and storytelling to the next level!
