My Students

Our students and families are the heart of our school! It is an exceptional school with a diverse population both ethnically and socioeconomically. Our classroom is a place where they can spread their wings in a safe, fun environment. Our classroom is their home away from home and I know that some days they spend more time with me, then they do with their own families. I am dedicated to making sure they feel comfortable, relaxed, and ready to learn everyday! I want them to have the tools and resources they need to explore and create deeper understandings of the world around them and how they can thrive in that world! They grow so much in this first year of school, and my number one priority is helping them to love school and giving them confidence as they start their educational journey!

My Project

Every morning when we enter the classroom, I give my students 15-20 minutes to work collaboratively at their tables with daily stem/fine motor bins. At this age, opportunities to build fine motor skills, as well as manipulate items that relate to balance, measurement, planning, and creativity are so valuable! The students wake up their brains and bodies, and also use lots of authentic vocabulary and language to solve problems, and build social skills! We need these items to give more choice to this very important part of our day! We currently have a limited supply of items to use throughout our school year.
