My Students

I have the privilege of working with a group of incredible Kindergarten students. I feel honored that I get to be their first experience with school, and it is my goal to create a classroom that fosters a love of learning.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds.

Some of my students are English Language Learners; others are from military families. I have students in foster care, and others that come from single parent homes. I work hard to build a positive classroom environment which fosters a love of learning, no matter what background the child is coming from. This project will support that learning environment.

My Project

My students love building new creations at our classroom LEGO Table. The students come up with amazing stories about their LEGO structures, but they are in need of LEGO figures to help their creations come alive. This project will provide my students with a set of LEGO Minifigures. These figures would be an amazing addition to our LEGO table as the figures have a variety of themes (like construction workers, doctors, and children). I am also requesting a building set that will provide my students with the opportunity to enhance their structures with windows and roofs.

My students would absolutely love this project as it would be an amazing addition to our classroom building area.
