My Students

My kindergarten class is a fun, loving group of kids! We like to call ourselves a family. Together we learn to read, write, count, work as a team, compliment each other, and most of all work through problems. We like to incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating to ensure that each student's needs are met. The smile on their face each day makes it all worth it for me!

I treat my kids like they are my own!

I love each and every one of them. They are special to me because they truly try their best each and everyday.

My Project

I want to continue to add flexible seating options for my students. I want to start with these three colorful seats. I know my students will love them because they love working around the room (not at their tables).

I will use them during every subject area during our kindergarten day.

They will be used during morning work, writing time, math, and reading. If my students want to use them during centers to do some independent work, they may.

When I bring these into my classroom, I know my kids' eyes will be so big and wide because they are excited.
