My Students

My legends are a very diverse and lovable bunch. We are in the beginning stages of reading and writing. The legends enjoy learning about science and social studies but of course they will tell you their favorite part about school is recess. They are very interested in technology and it is a huge part of our classroom. I think this class will go down in history as one of my favorites and I am beyond proud to be their teacher.

My Project

For the past couple years, I have not had a story time carpet big enough to accommodate all of my students. We spend a lot of time at the carpet in kindergarten. We read stories, watch videos, and do a lot of fun learning on our carpet. I prefer learning on the carpet. It is one of my favorite spots in the classroom. I love reading them books, have conversations, and listening to them share and grow. It has been hard finding alternative seating for the students who don't fit on the carpet. I don't want any of my children to feel left out. The carpet is a spot where my little caterpillars turn into butterflies.
