My Students

Our school is built for CHAMPIONS. This is our school motto. We want to build champions. I have a room full of amazing 4 year olds. They bring joy to my life every morning as they walk into the room. I can see the light in the eye and the curiosity in their little minds. They love to learn new songs and dances. They think they are just singing and dancing but little do they know, they are actually learning. From rhythm to months of the year to days of the week. I have songs that teach my students how to spell all their numbers.

My students work hard to pave their own path.

I have a room full of 24 student who love to come to class because we do fun activities and learn something new every day. I have 3 English Language Learners that enjoy all the visuals and hands-on activities.

My Project

Hands-on is the best policy when teaching young minds. I love watching the students learn by adding new materials to my classroom. This is my first year to teach and I want my students to have the best. I am a math teacher and I have always wanted to teach my students the importance of everyday math. I have that chance now. By learning your ABC's it helps you read. By using numbers and manipulatives, it teaches their minds to see numbers and objects a different way.

Math is the beginning of being able to build your life of numbers.

Numbers are everywhere in the world. We must teach little minds how to see and touch numbers. Pre-Kindergarten is the age to introduce a whole new world of numbers. The Counting Cars and Count and Link items I am requesting will help the students match numbers to the number of objects. They are learning the one to one correspondence. The Classic Hardwood Learning Toys helps the students with motor skills as well as colors and shapes. Learning is seeing and touching.

Our classroom was affected by Hurricane Harvey.
