My Students

My students are in the heart of Key West, Florida. Our school is known as a Title I school. My class is a unique group of individual students. There are four languages spoken in the classroom, and some of the students are bi-lingual or tri-lingual. This dynamic is wonderful for our school and myself as I constantly learn from each student daily.

These children are constantly eager to try and explore new opportunities that are associated with the kindergarten classroom and school.

As a school, we use different projects and invigorating ideas to help promote the curriculum in each grade level in our school. My goal is to try to help my students with different resources to promote a positive culture in the public school system and have these students develop a passion for learning and school.

My Project

In kindergarten students learn about different two dimensional and three dimensional shapes. My classroom does not have the resources needed to help with students creating and making shapes by using other shapes. In our unit, I am planning a PBL lesson using two and three dimensional shapes. This will be a hands on approach and students will be able to form many different three dimensional shapes by using two dimensional shapes.

In our classroom, students are encouraged to explore and take an initiative to promote their own learning.

With these resources of colors and carpet, students will be able to learn through our PBL unit of shapes. Students will be able to make and form different shapes using two dimensional shapes. With a hands on approach, students will be able to create many different shapes through our Project Based Learning Unit.
