My Students

We come to school each day with a heart for learning and teaching. We love working together to learn all we can! Much of the learning we do in kindergarten is through active play and exploration.

A typical day in my classroom is full of learning, laughter, and the excited chatter of my kindergarteners as we collaborate and share our love of learning.

Each day centers around building students up to be successful in the future. One of our favorite rules of the classroom is to believe in yourself!

My Project

The best way to become a better reader, writer, and friend is to practice! These books will help us to have strong examples of writing that has strategies we can use in our own writing.

The social emotional books will help us to be better friends to all.

High interest non-fiction will help my all of my readers to find something everyone can read.

Many of my students do not have access to books in their home. These books will help me to spread a love of reading and learning that will hopefully spread beyond the walls of our classroom.
