My Students

My goal is to make my classroom fun and engaging. I want my students to love coming to school and to be active learners!

I have 24 kindergarten and transitional kindergarten students.

They come to school each day with big smiles on their faces and are ready to learn. Several students in my class have ADHD and one student is Autistic. My goal is to meet the needs of all of the learners in my classroom. I teach in a low-income school with a high number of English language learners. My school is innovative and offers a wide variety of after-school clubs to give opportunities to students that many probably wouldn't have otherwise.

My Project

My transitional kindergartners and kindergartners need a lot of practice and hands-on activities to learn their alphabet letters, sounds, and to practice reading sight words. I am requesting Lakeshore alphabet dough stampers, a writing center, phonics sentence reader kits, magnetic number of the day charts, and a magnetic organization chart.

I want to use these learning materials to target the needs of individual students.

The dough stampers will be used to help students practice letter recognition, sight words, and sounds in a fun and engaging way. For example, they can pull a picture card with a sun on it and then stamp out the word sun into their playdoh. The writing center will be used daily during our center time. This will store markers, colored pencils, different types of paper, stamps, etc. for students to use to write books, illustrate stories, and more. The phonics readers can be used during centers or in my small group reading intervention time. They are great practice to build fluency. The magnetic math chart will hang on our white board and we will focus on a different number every day. What a fun way to build number sense! I will use the dry erase organization charts to write out the standards that I am targeting each day.

Using these hands-on materials is so much more engaging than a worksheet! My students are going to love them!
