My Students

I have the honor to teach 22 AMAZING little hearts and minds. My students are in Kindergarten and we live in the great state of Michigan.

Kindergarten is one of the very best grades to teach, because my students are all so eager and willing to learn.

They love school and love their teacher. Kindergarten is the best!

Kindergarten has changed so much in the past five years as we have gone from half day, every other day, Kindergarten to ALL day, everyday, Kindergarten. My students are being asked so much more than every before, but they always rise to the occasion and task. One of my favorite parts about teaching Kindergarten is seeing the growth my students make in only one short year.

My Project

My project will help my students be inquisitive and promote sensory play and exploration. This project will promote my students to be life long learners keeping a focus on science and technology in mind. I already have several materials that will support project-based learning and all I need are the light boards to do it!

Kindergarten students learn by exploration and play-based learning and they will love exploring projects and tasks that will involve the light boards.

A few of the activities will be building structures with certain shapes in mind, sorting of colorful water beads that are illuminated by the board and making letters with translucent lines and curves.
