My Students

Kindergarten students are the best! They are so excited about everything they are learning and are like sponges during the whole experience. They come into school excited each day and ready to learn. When they start to understand a new concept I can see the little light bulb of excitement going on! Kindergarten is the best grade to help kids get excited about their entire school experience. It all starts here!

I am excited for this school year.

Let's go!

My Project

Kindergarten LOVES science and exploring. We need GREAT activities that align with our science curriculum that the students can use hands on. These manipulative's will also make a great introduction into STEM at the kindergarten level. Not only would this make a great addition to our to our science unit called, motion: pushes and pulls, but would also be a great addition to our classroom exploration centers. They love using their skills to create and explore. We would love to use building brick stem challenge kit and ramps and balls exploration in our classroom. Thank you for helping our class!
