My Students

Teaching Kindergarten is an amazing journey. My students come in with such different personalities and abilities. Some students are shy and quiet and others are outspoken and determined. Some students are beginning readers and others are amazing artists. Whatever their personality or ability, I am entrusted to loving and growing them beginning from where they are.

Kindergarten is an adventure!

My goal is to always create a classroom culture of forgiveness, risk taking, sharing, and empathy. We celebrate and encourage each other! And as much as they learn from me, I always learn from them.

My Project

This year I would like move away from paper/pencil morning work and introduce fine motor morning tubs to my students. I want my students to begin their day with engaging, hands on activities that will develop and strengthen their fine motor and academic skills. My hope is for my students to come in to the classroom excited for which station and what activity they will start their day with! Through the use of morning stations, with varied activities, my students will need to share and learn cooperatively, which will develop the whole child and also help to reinforce the skills they have learned.

"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning-But for children , play is serious learning."- Dr. Rogers.

They will find hidden objects in Therapy Putty. Students will develop muscles in their hands when they use tongs to pick up small objects like plastic flies during the month of October! They will use their tiny fingers to create a pattern using Pop Beads. Students will build alphabet recognition and fine motor skills by snapping together pieces to build letters and numbers. These items will be housed in a 12 drawer organizer system so that students can independently get their drawer and begin work!
