My Students

My classroom is made of twenty-three wonderful Kindergarten students! The neat thing is, we are all doing this thing called 'Kindergarten' together for the first time!! Over the last sixty school days, we have built positive social relationships, worked hard academically, and have grown together!!

I am a very loving and caring educator, who wants the very best for each and every one of my students!

I have learned that it is very critical to find ways to spark the engagement of the children in my classroom to reach all of their different learning styles!

My Project

These hands on literacy materials will enhance their literacy learning. The alphabet letters and sounds are the basis for reading! Which is the foundation of every subject throughout their entire school career!

These alphabet learning items and centers will be used to reach each child at their developmental level, all the way from identifying their first letter to becoming a fluent reader!

The Learn the Alphabet! Dough Mats will provide the children with a hands-on approach to learning! I am extremely excited to further engage the children in my classroom with these new exciting materials!! Thank you for donating to my classroom!
