My Students

My students walk in the door with smiling faces, asking questions about what we are going to learn each day. These children are ready to explore and learn! I work at a low-income school. I try to get most of the items we need for the classroom, but we still need more resources. In Kindergarten, we create connections and reinforce what was learned through games and activities! I am always looking for new ways to reinforce what was taught, so I can connect with every student. We are ready for an awesome school year! Thank you for looking at our project!

My Project

These bins will make a great impact on our classroom. We have some in our room and it is so easy to grab a game or center and just "go" do it. The games and centers stay organized and are easy to clean up. We do not lose pieces because they all get locked into the bins. The students love all of the different games and centers that I have put into the bins, but we have run out of bins and need more. With more bins I can have more games and centers to connect with every learner in the classroom and give them a variety of bins to pick from daily. Thanks for looking at our project.
