I liked to begin by introducing my class. I have a class of twenty, 5-6 year old, vivacious children.
What I love about my class is that they are kind and accepting of one another.
They all learn in different ways, but they are supportive of one another and help in any way they can. They are excited about learning and love to share it with each other, with other students in our building, and with their parents. They are each other's biggest cheerleaders and love to celebrate their own personal success as well as each others.
In a kindergarten classroom, organization, structure and routine are imperative.
With many different learning styles, my classroom needs to be clearly labeled and print rich.
A lot of customization and personalization happens throughout the year from setting up the classroom materials, to organizing centers to creating grade level t-shirts for assemblies, field trips and grade level activities. Having a Cricut machine will save me a lot of time. In the past, I have spent numerous hours hand-crafting, drawing, and searching the web for graphics and visual models. As an K-inclusion teacher, the majority of my day is spent differentiating my instruction for both students with disabilities, as well as my typical students.
Kindergarten is a a pinnacle year in a child's school experience and to have an organized and structured room, it can help to reduce anxiety and students can learn to be independent.
