My Students

My class is composed of 19 eager, energetic, and capable kindergarteners who love a good role play scenario. Our current classroom's dramatic play center is extremely popular--a place for many students to come together for a common goal: to PLAY. With the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, our children have had limited opportunities to do just this.

As their teacher, it is my duty to meet them where they are, give them what they need, and foster their growth.

This project, The Kitchen is the Heart of the Classroom, will provide my students with more opportunities to continue to grow, learn, and play!

My Project

As a kindergarten teacher, I understand the need, importance and power of play, and the valuable opportunities for social interactions and meaningful learning it brings. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of my students have encountered limited social interactions and time in the classroom with their peers, emotional unease and fear about leaving the home, being in school, and being around others.

Our current situation due to the pandemic has made the need for cozy, home-like classroom environments where children can experiment with familiar scenarios even more important.

My project, The Kitchen is the Heart of the Classroom, will provide just this: a home living area for dramatic play where students can learn through play with their peers in an environment which feels familiar, cozy, and safe.
