My Students

I have been teaching kindergarten for 18 years and I feel like this is one of my favorite classes.

My students are so sweet, thoughtful, and kind.

They are always helping one another, hugging them hello or goodbye, they make notes or bring treats to each other. If someone doesn't feel well or is having a hard time, one of their classmates is always there for a hug or a pep talk, or a funny to make that person laugh.

My Project

Having a large mobile whiteboard/magnetic easel that can be moved and seen from anywhere in the room is essential to effective teaching. Its size is perfect for tall teachers and short students alike. It is easily moved around the room for active learning opportunities and use by all students no matter their abilities. It holds all the necessary materials for smooth teaching of all subjects and creates a place that is easily organized and kid friendly. It is a focal point for guest teachers to locate materials.

The easel will help keep students engaged while I model, display, and show examples of the topics we are learning about by giving us a place to hang and display chart paper and anchor charts, as well as hold big books during story time.

Students can use it interactively by using magnet letters to make words and dry erase markers to write and create words and sentences. Students can also use magnet numbers and shapes to count and make patterns. In addition, the easel will become an independent work station during centers.
