My Students

This is a bright and active group of five and six-year-old children. They love to create and tell stories. They love to read and be read to. They are quickly learning to work together, which is a vital skill in our world. My children work in small groups and independently throughout the day. This helps them learn to focus and improve self-control issues. Small group activities that let us get up and move help our ADHD tendencies stay under control. We need real reasons to move and stretch.

My students grow in all areas by practicing and playing together.

Writing throughout the day in science, social studies, math, and even in art helps them in so many ways. They get noisy, but they learn so much together. They need supplies to grow as readers, writers, and illustrators. Our parents just cannot afford to supply these items. The students need to show the colors of their ideas. They also need ways to be active and help learn to control ADHD tendencies. There is so much to learn.

My Project

Kindergarten is lots of small group station time. We meet whole class for a few minutes, then break off to practice our skills. We need to keep our activities organized and carefully planned out. We then come back to the whole group.

With these trays with lids, we will get to revisit our favorite stations and keep track of our supplies.

Each tray can be set up with specific goals and objectives. We will be able to scaffold our skills with a variety of ways to practice those skills. For example, one tray will have counters and cards to practice our numbers to ten. A different color tray will have dry erase supplies with laminated sheets for those numbers. We will manipulate counters, then write out the numerals to match.

These counters will increase our quantity understanding. They are quiet, too.
