My Students

My students this past year were constantly on the move. They really struggled with

Whole Body listening on the rug and needed constant movement breaks to accommodate their constantly moving bodies.

I also saw a lot of students that had a hard time with social skills like taking turns and sharing toys in the classroom. I added an extra recess into my routine that would start each day and would last about 20 minutes. I noticed a big difference with my student's abilities to focus and to play together during these times. By the end of the school year, my student's social skills and problem-solving​ skills had grown dramatically!

My Project

Kindergarten students spend a lot of time on academics during their six-hour school day! Sometimes we forget they are only five and six years old and need to play to learn social skills like turn-taking, sharing, cooperation and so much more. Children use their imaginations less and less these days with all the technology they get outside of school so in my classroom I have a second recess every day. This lasts for the first 20 minutes of their school day and I have seen a great improvement in their ability to focus and get along with one another and use problem-solving skills. I will use the new dramatic play table, rug, and Magnatiles to enhance their playtime experience!
