My Students

I found out that I will be teaching a new grade next year. That being said, I need a few new things for my new kinder babies. I believe that I'm making this move now because there is a student coming in who needs me.

Every student is interesting, unique, and deserves the best that the world can offer them.

I believe it is my job to prepare my kids for life to the best of my ability, and I see such potential in each and every child that has ever been a part of my classroom.

My Project

Painting can be a very messy activity, however, children and adults of all ages still enjoy painting. I am asking for a class set of tempera paint stix, along with easel painting pads to give my students a painting center.

Starting over is hard, but I am looking forward to a brand new start with a whole new age group.

My students will improve their fine motor skills by​ learning how to draw with the paint stix. I plan on having students at the painting station each morning. Students will also learn how to draw, because believe it or not, many have never drawn anything before.
