My Students

I am a first-year kindergarten teacher and I am looking to incorporate a play center in my classroom. I am very excited to be teaching this year! I have boys and girls who are from a Title One school district and most receive free lunch. I have some students in their first year being at school, and I am excited to see them learn and develop this year! My kids are amazing, energetic, love learning and are excited about kindergarten!

My Project

All of my students love to play. I recently found a food cart and I need some items for my students to use with it. By having the pretend food, a scale and a cash register with "real" money, this will incorporate the real world into their pretend play! I will use this during free play Friday and indoor recess days. This will help my children use things they see in their day to day lives. Using this as a mini grocery store will help them with their development. They are all still so young and this will also help with their social skills. I would love to incorporate more of this into my classroom.
