My Students

My kindergarten students come to school with incredible enthusiasm for learning and they love to be engaged in hands-on activities. They come from a variety of backgrounds and, for some, it is their first school experience. I teach at a school with approximately 800 students in Pre-K through 5th grade.

Our curriculum focuses on student inquiry-based learning with a global perspective.

Under my care is a group of wildly curious kindergartners who are eager to learn and have fun in the process.

My Project

Eight years ago, I purchased a set of dry erase pockets for my class. It turned out to be a wonderful investment, as I have used them every year since. When our school building closed due to COVID 19, I knew those dry erase pockets were one of the resources my students would enjoy using at home to practice handwriting, math problems, spelling, or even to take on the role of a teacher themselves. What child doesn't enjoy writing with markers?

Now that my well-loved dry erase pockets have found new homes, I am in need of a new set.

Even before school building closures, I would send home resources for my students to practice via a pocket folder. I have been using the same folders for several years, but now it is time for a new set so I can continue to send materials home. I have selected waterproof folders that have a button closure so they can protect the materials inside and withstand the typical kindergarten backpack.

Thank you in advance for supporting student learning at home and at school.
