My Students

We are a kindergarten classroom within an urban public school. Funds may be tight and resources are allocated to other important projects and materials. Our school is an innovative dual language Spanish program and many of my students come from underprivileged neighborhoods. They come to me with very few social experiences and crave the opportunities for exploration and creativity that my classroom provides.

Students come to school full of energy, ready to learn, and super eager for the different literacy and mathematics activities they will engage in during that day.

They are always curious about the world around them, ready to explore, play, and learn.

I teach at a dual language inner-city school in Boston where 80% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

After working with second graders for many years, I took on a new role teaching kindergarteners! I am asking for help to make my classroom more accessible and intellectually stimulating for my students.

My Project

The rug is where we conduct our daily mini lessons, open circle lessons, and where students can go to work collaboratively with one another during centers. There is so much learning on the rug, so to have a nice, comfortable and clean space will keep my students cozy and focused on their lessons. The specific rug I'd like to have in our room has color and shape prints, so the rug in itself is a learning tool!

We also take lots of pictures of the projects we create and our special moments with each other.

Having enough ink to capture these important memories and works of art would be so helpful! Kindergarteners have such colorful personalities and their work should mirror that!
