My Students

I am fortunate enough to spend my days with 20 wonderful students. They come in eager to learn, share, and participate in class. They have grown so much in just a few months and I look forward to seeing where the rest of the school year takes us.

My kindergarteners love to make believe and play cooperatively with one another.

There are a variety of learners and abilities in this classroom. This play time is crucial for many of them to learn social and emotional skills.

My Project

My students enjoy exploration time where they get to color, play games, do puzzles, and play in our kitchen. This is a crucial time as students learn how to play cooperatively with others, share, and communicate. Some students have barriers that make it hard to enjoy and participate in these activities without support. They are working on social skills, flexible thinking, and communicating with peers.

My Kindergarteners love to come to school to see their friends, play, and learn.

Recently they have been requesting materials to support this play that I do not have. Our dramatic play area is scarce, with some kitchen furniture and food. Giving students the tools to play imaginatively with one another will help foster friendships. I would like to purchase a variety of toys so they have the space to imagine in a variety of contexts with their peers. This project would provide dress up clothes, dolls, and play props. By providing these motivating and appropriate materials, students will be able to have meaningful play experiences with a wide variety of imaginative play scenarios. Thank you for considering!
