My Students

My 25 Kindergartners are the reason I love going to work every day. They are inquisitive, caring, and hard working. They come in ready to learn, not only academics but valuable lifelong social skills.

My students engage in many activities throughout the day in my classroom.

My students seem to learn best when we are doing theme-based learning that integrates play and hands-on learning. Each student learns best in different ways, so having a range of stations and materials in my room helps me meet all my students' needs.

My Project

My Kindergarten class needs more play and art based materials to help us create, work together, and learn in our kindergarten classroom. We need eggs for our sensory table to practice matching, trees to learn about the parts in the fall, and dot markers to practice our letters.

These materials will bring lots of learning opportunities into our classroom!

We will be creating with Kwikstixs and dot markers, listening to our Me Readers with partners, and building sight words with the letter blocks. These materials will help the five and six-year-olds in my room engage in play-based learning!
