My Students

My kindergarten students are enthusiastic, eager, and energetic! They come to school ready to learn, but sometimes they face some challenges and need extra help along the way...whether that be socially, emotionally, academically, or physically.

I love being able to help my students however I can to set them up for success not only in their kindergarten year​ but for the rest of their lives.

Making learning fun and meaningful for them is my top priority each and every day!

My Project

In our kindergarten classroom, we will use our new rug as a special meeting place for morning meeting, read alouds, whole class lessons, songs, work time, and much more!

My students need a cozy place to meet, learn, and have fun.

A new rug is just what they need! The rug also has letters and numbers that we can use for special activities...and each student can have his/her own letter or number to sit or stand on, creating some personal space.

Please help my kindergarten students be snug as a bug in a rug while we learn and have fun at school!
