My Students

This is a bright and active group of five- and six-year old children. They love to create and tell stories. They love to read and be read to. They are quickly learning to work together, which is a vital skill in our world. My children work in small groups and independently throughout the day. This helps them learn to focus and improve self-control issues. Small group activities that let us get up and move help our ADHD tendencies stay under control. We need real reasons to move and stretch.

My students grow in all areas by practicing and playing together.

Writing throughout the day in science, social studies, math, and even in art helps them in so many ways. They get noisy, but they learn so much together. They need supplies to grow as readers, writers, and illustrators. Our parents just cannot afford to supply these items. The students need to show the colors of their ideas. They also need ways to be active and need help to learn to control ADHD tendencies. There is so much to learn.

My Project

My kinders do not have a home library, so they borrow two books every night to read, enjoy and share at home. These books take quite a beating in this daily traveling. These bags will help us share our favorites and keep the books alive for more enjoyment.

Five and six year old kinders are struggling to focus through all the academics we have to pull them through.

These fidgets will help my kinders learn to keep their fingers as busy as their brains are. These items will help them grow as readers and active learners in all discussions and activities. These simple fidgets will strengthen all areas of growth.
