My Students

My students are amazing, active, little people. They work hard and give their best in most everything they do. Sometimes as little six-year-olds, it is hard to focus on the task at hand if it is not fun and engaging.

My students are eager to learn and love to please their parents and teachers.

They LOVE learning to read and write. These little people soak up all the knowledge like a sponge. They are the future of tomorrow. These kids are becoming great citizens and leaders.

My Project

The requested materials will be used during small group instruction to help the students with reading, writing, and math. These manipulatives will be used to make the learning hands-on, engaging, and fun!

My students are eager to learn and need multiple exposures to solidify the learning.

Using the manipulatives will help the students remember what they have learned. Learning to spell and do simple addition is crucial for these kindergarten students.

The manipulatives in this project will be used every day during center time. The students love centers, but engagement can be hard. Having these manipulatives will help keep these six-year-olds engaged and eager to learn.
