Our Little Eagles Rise Up!

Help me give my students an interactive--alphabet poster, class calendar and ten frame. These portable pocket charts will allow me to reinforce skills online through Zoom. In addition, I would like to read kinder-friendly short readers to them!

My Students

My students are a wonderful group of highly energetic, engaging, curious, and fun-loving kindergartners. On March 16th, 2020 our school shut down due to the Coronavirus. This has created a challenge for my kindergartners who are normally used to coming to school every day to see their friends, interact, sing with me in class, and most importantly practice their social and academic skills.

We have ventured together through this uncertain time of school closures!

I still have much to teach these curious little minds. I meet 2 times a week to engage my 5-6 year old students on Zoom sessions. We continue to make the best of this curveball. They come to our weekly Zoom sessions with excitement to see their new online class and to participate in singing, phonics and math in addition to their weekly work packets. They are truly rising up to the new concept of distance learning.

My Project

After a rather abrupt ending to our school year that nobody anticipated, I found myself unprepared for the huge task of teaching online to 20 little eager kindergartners who thrive in an otherwise highly engaging educational atmosphere. I know that I can utilize an interactive calendar to provide a sense of normalcy with our calendar routines. It is imperative that I solidify as much of what they have learned in order to prepare them for 1st grade. The interactive alphabet chart will allow me to randomly call on students online to match the image to the correct letter sound. This will allow me to assess through my online teaching.

This unique kindergarten class of eagles will rise up in spite of COVID-19.

Our way of teaching and learning has changed dramatically. I need to continue to give my students the best education possible. Currently, I have no whiteboard at home, so having a portable whiteboard will allow me to attach papers, posters, and pocket charts. The ten frame pocket chart will allow me to provide math problems through the use of visuals.
