My Students

In my kindergarten class, I have anywhere between 20-30 students from year to year. I teach in a Title I building, that services about 83%+ low income, ELL students. Almost all of my students have the risk factor of English as a second language. Due to this high percentage, many of my students are not exposed to many life experiences.

My school is amazing- we strive for excellence from not only our staff, but also the students & families too.

Are expectations are high, because we know, with the right support, our students are capable of amazing things! We are a very welcoming & warm community, that wants the best for everyone!

My Project

The materials I am requesting are for morning or STEM tubs. Each material will be housed in it's own tub.

"Morning tubs offer a play-based opportunity for students to explore, create, and communicate.

A non-threatening way to start the day, morning tubs help reduce the length of your morning routine, get students excited about the day, and encourage collaboration."

Starting the day with play-based learning is developmentally appropriate for kindergarten. These tubs allow for hands-on learning and practice. They also allow for collaboration and cooperation. What a fun & engaging way for my kindergartners to start their school day!
