My Students

I teach 22 kindergarten students in the greater Houston area. We have a variety of learning types in our class. The one thing they all love is to use technology. They love to use the chrome books, iPads and computers for research, games, even coding. There are some who have never been to school and are just learning to write their name, and we have some who are already reading and writing! My students are eager to learn and love doing hands on activities. They love working together to help each other learn new things.

My Project

Kindergarten children need many opportunities to use hands on materials to explore. My students are in need of additional science materials. The science center is a favorite in my classroom and I can not keep it stocked! We will use the jumbo magnifiers to look up close at the science things we already have, such as specimen jars. We also need more constructive technology equipment. Today’s kids are faced with a tremendous amount of technology but are not given the tools to use it appropriately. I want to be able to teach my students may different ways to use technology as well as provide them with safe ways to explore. We can use the tiggly math sets, tiggly shapes and the shapes sets to help them learn to use different types of safe technology. Coding is becoming an increasing skill I would love the opportunity to give my students a head start. We love to use the bee bot and having our own would help the students solidify the students knowledge. Finally we are in need of more dramatic play materials. We will use the baby dolls and clothes for our center so that kids can expand their oral language through pretend play.
