My Students

I teach kindergarten students who are very enthusiastic and inquisitive learners. Their backgrounds are varied, from affluent to poverty level. Some are ESOL students, and some have special needs. Our school is large, with over 900 students in Pre-K through 5th grade. Our diverse population makes us special.

Our curriculum focuses on student inquiry-based learning with a global perspective with the essential hands-on learning.

They love to play in centers to learn financial literacy through a grocery store, create in an art center, build in a block and game center, listen to stories on a computer, read books in the reading center, and explore in the science center. They learn through play and by doing. Most of our daily instruction is in small groups using many different hands-on materials. Art and creativity play an important part in our classroom. We use lots of technology while creating stories and art. Almost all of our lessons are based on children's literature.

My Project

Art and math are important parts of our day. My students love using "real artist materials." With the canvases and acrylic paint they will get a chance to create with genuine materials. We will display these on the plastic easels I have requested. I requested Shrinky Dink so they can make lasting artwork into a necklace.

Math is essential to our students' success so the math materials will make abstract concepts concrete to my little learners.

They will love working with the giant ten frame mats on the floor. Addition and subtraction concepts will be easily demonstrated. We use a large class Rekenrek now that they all beg to use. With the student size ones a group at a time can use them during our math groups. We can never have enough shapes so I have requested additional attribute blocks.
