My Students

My students are full of energy and curiosity! They are five- and six-year-olds who come to school excited to learn. I try to make learning fun and engaging as they learn through play. For some of my students, kindergarten is their first school experience which means that they come with different skills and abilities.

I believe that every child can learn at their own developmental pace.

My goal as a teacher is to provide engaging and challenging learning experiences in a positive and safe environment.

My Project

Expressing your feelings isn't easy in kindergarten! During our morning meeting, everyone gets a turn to share something that happened or how they feel. For many students, this is easy, but I have students who are shy or just don't know how to express themselves. I'm requesting journals that are specifically designed for expressing their feelings. They include emojis, a space to draw, and also lines for them to explain why they feel the way they do. Expressing their feelings is a skill that will empower them throughout their lives!

I'm also requesting the book Feelings and Dealings: The ABC's of Emotions which is a therapeutic tool that will help my students develop emotional intelligence and social skills through rhyme while moving through the alphabet.

They will discover a wide range of twenty-six common emotions which will build empathy, self-awareness, and interpersonal connections.

I'm also requesting five headphones to add to our listening center. My students will enjoy listening to stories using headphones. They will love to hear these stories again and again!
