My students are part of an exciting project - a brand new campus of Hynes being built from the ground up, with 4 classes of kindergarten this year and extending each year until 8th grade.
My 29 kindergarten students are wildly enthusiastic about using materials to explore, understand and learn.
We are located in Orleans parish in the city of New-Orleans and our school caters to children from different cultures and various incomes. The school is currently housed on temporary campus.
The specificity of my Kindergarten class within this school is quite unique. The school offers a French immersion program which the students in my class are part of.
French language in context in the immersive setting, helps to build understanding, to convey meaning and ultimately students' fluency.
I know my students will proudly be able to use descriptive French language while using the manipulatives.
It will enhance their learning in achieving both the core lesson objective and fluency
My students will use the manipulatives in STEM, Math and ELA activities.
The materials will help to motivate and stimulate my students.
Learning in Math at the kindergarten level is hands on and manipulating fun colorful material is enjoyable. The materials fit in with the Math curriculum we use. The STEM materials will keep them inspired to discover, explore and learn.
The puzzle will help to talk about culture. The activities such as lacing, stamping and the giant sizes provide a sensory option which will help to make connections and support the lesson objectives in ELA. All the materials will also put language in action and in context to reinforce the objectives of French immersion.
