My Students

This will be my 6th year teaching kindergarten and my classroom demographic has been consistently low income students, many being Hispanic and/or English language learners. Our school is 100% free breakfast and lunch as well as transitioning to a STEM school.

I would like to stimulate cognitive skills by providing students with purposeful playtime each day.

Their creativity has been encouraging as well as enlightening.

My Project

As stated in the title this is "Part 2" of a previous project already funded. When I submitted the first project I had no idea that what a success the stepping stones and fairy tale mind games would be to the students. They have really been able to use their imagination as well as get out their wiggles, especially on indoor recess days! Unfortunately our indoor recess days have increased this year due to weather and/or staffing shortages which has created notable restlessness in my students.

My students are thriving off the classroom "Fairy Tale" theme through mind games as well as constructing forest themed obstacle courses, so much so that we currently do not have enough supplies for student demand.

With the funding of this "Part 2" project I am hoping every student in my classroom will be able to participate daily in these "high demand" activities by increasing supplies.
