My Students

Welcome to kindergarten! Students ages range between 5-6 years old. Over 50% of the student population qualify for free or reduced lunch, thus enabling our school for Title 1 federal funding.

Our school rests in a community that sits beside the sea and a neighboring University.

We have a variety of students that attend our school. The majority of students are polynesian. We also have many students from around the world whose second language is English because their parents are trying to further their education at the University.

The students that attend our school have both parents at home who work, most even work multiple jobs to accomodate the high cost of living. Many families also have multiple families living in the same household.

My Project

In kindergarten students learn through play. Play is the work of young children. With so much academic rigor being pushed down it is easy to forget how young children actually learn. Providing my kiddos with age appropriate learning tools is a big priority for me.

The VersaTiles math classroom kit will provide important hands on learning experiences that will help my kindergarteners strengthen their math skills through play.

The great thing about this resource is that students will be able to self check!! This adds another level of accountability through the guise of fun. My students LOVE to be correct, LOVE to have fun and LOVE to play.
