My Students

I am currently the general education teacher in a Kindergarten ICT classroom. My classroom is comprised of students with a variety of capabilities from diverse family backgrounds.

They thrive on learning, building and creating.

Since my students are so eager to learn, my co-teacher and I love to bring in varied and new experiences that they might not be able to get at home. They are wonderful boys and girls, who deserve all the interesting and hands-on materials they need to succeed.

My Project

My administration has asked me to apply my own early childhood knowledge of sewing to various third, fourth and fifth grade students. Sewing is a fun and creative endeavor to take on, especially with kids. Children of any age can learn some form of sewing that can lead them on a path to eventually create their own complex projects and clothing.

For this I will need sewing starter kits, a tape measure and a lot of extra thread.

I will be meeting with this club once a week from February to June and I know we will be going through tons of materials as we learn the basics of sewing.
