My Students

I teach kindergarten at an elementary school in Utah. Our neighborhood is a mix of older and newer houses. We serve a wide variety of families at our school. Many of the students at our school come from low income families. There is a large percentage of our school that receives free or reduced lunch.

My classes are both very ethnically and racially diverse and several of my students are English Language Learners.

I teach morning and afternoon half day kindergarten. Not only is my class one of their first experiences with school, but they are learning to speak a whole new language. These students all love school and have a desire to learn. Everyday they are excited about what they will learn next!

My Project

Students will be able to explore with hands on manipulatives and learn about shapes. They will learn their attributes while sorting them into different groups. They will be able to recognize them in real life situations based on their attributes. They will also be able to build them and use their imagination as they use various shapes to build other shapes. They will gain early concepts of geometry through their exploration, that will become important as they get older. When the kids use these manipulatives, it will help make learning about shapes exciting and so much fun in many different ways!
