My Students

This year I am lucky enough to have 22 kindergarten students in my room. This will be my first year teaching and I would like to provide my students with every opportunity possible to learn and make progress. My district has a high rate of free and reduced lunches, as well as a high rate of students in foster care and homeless youth. Our classroom will include students with and without disabilities, all working together to have an amazing kindergarten year!

Kindergarten is the starting block of all students education.

Habits and experiences I help to create for them will have a lasting impact on the rest of their school career.

My Project

The items in this project are classroom supplies that I have recently discovered are a must for my students. I want to provide my students with all the tools necessary to develop their writing skills. The pens will allow my students to complete their stories with a quality illustration. They love when their picture pops off the page after they have used the illustrating markers to complete their picture. The clip boards will allow my students to sit comfortably in a space of their choosing to complete their assignments, when students are able to work comfortably their stamina increases and in-turn their learning increases.
