My Students

Students and families at our school enjoy sharing one another's cultures and enjoy participating in after-school events integrated with arts, crafts, literacy, sports, and STEM activities. Our staff prides itself on reaching the needs of our individual students and families, and we often come together to collect funds or make meals for families or staff members who are experiencing complicated circumstances.

My Kindergarten students are a beautiful mix of people including Latino, White, Black, Native American, & Asian.

Our school is a small school community of about 500 children and 78% are living in a low-income level home.

My Project

I collaborate very closely with my grade-level partner and as we were putting together an order in May, we realized that these necessary materials were way beyond our $400 budget limit. Our rigorous math curriculum requires us to teach abstract concepts like identifying 3D shapes to our Kindergarten students. Some of our kiddos come to school with no pre-school background, and we need to work on basic number identification too. This project will support our two classrooms.

These giant stepping stones will not only give our students a leg up on one-to-one correspondence but will also build gross motor balancing skills.

The geometric shape builders and 10-frame dice will encourage teamwork as we use them in the most meaningful way; PLAY!
