Setting the Stage

Help me give my students items for our first classroom transformation project materials like camouflaged helmets, toy soldiers, and books that will help bring our learning to life.

My Students

Our site is very unique in that we are a stand alone Transitional Kindergarten campus. Through a play based model our students learn both social and academic skills to get their educational career off on the right foot.

Our classroom is full of enthusiastic, cooperative learners who learn best through play and exploration.

Currently I have 24 students with a variety of backgrounds and experiences. My goals as their teacher is provide them with a safe space where they feel comfortable to explore and learn. In our class we sing songs, dance, use our gross and fine motor skills all day long. My Transitional Kindergartners love learning and their is no doubt that they learn best through play.

My Project

Recently I had the privilege to attend the Get Your Teach On Conference, where I was encouraged to "Set the Stage" to encourage deep life long learning. There are many ways to do this but the way I feel will make the most impact on my little learners is a classroom transformation. A classroom transformation changes the day to day classroom environment with the goal of increasing students engagement and enriching the student learning with rigorous content. For our first classroom transformation we will be recreating Andy's Room from Toy Story.

Our classroom transformation project materials of camouflaged helmets, army men, blocks, and books will help immerse us in social skills, reading, writing, science, math, and so much more.

We can't wait to flood our library with books, engineer parachute for our army, and build words with our blocks. Thank you so much for helping us "set the stage to engage" and create this memorable learning experience.
