My Students

My kindergarten students are eager to start their day with a smile and a hug as they enter the class room ready to learn. Social -emotional and imaginative play centers is a fundamental part of the kindergarten cognitive experience. We are a Title I school, over 78% of our students are on free/reduced priced lunch. We are a rural county and our poverty level is rising. Despite the many challenges they face, I make sure they are loved, nurtured and accepted for whom they are! Most of my students get on the bus a little after 6am, arrive in my classroom at 7:45am, I feed them breakfast and they are my babies until 3:15. Most do not return home until 5pm. They spend majority of their day/life with me in our classroom.

My Project

My students use pretend play to, problem solve and converse with peers. They engage in cooperative play and practice their social skills.

Dramatic play helps my second language learners as well as my speech delayed students practice their communication skills and learn how to interact with their peers.

They use their imagination to act out social situations that are fun and engaging for them. They will pretend to purchase healthy snacks and make good choices when shopping. My students love to learn and love to be creative. They thrive when they are using their creativity and imagination. This gives them the opportunity to work on their emotional skills through socializing, grappling, and problem-solving while still having fun. Pretend play is an essential part of a Kindergarten and social-emotional development.
