My Students

My students love to learn. It is my job to teach them about the world around us. Albert Einstein once said, “Play is the highest form of research.” In my kindergarten classroom, play is organized, intentional, and necessary.

The 20 kindergarten students in my classroom are very diverse, representing a variety of cultures, languages, and backgrounds.

Many of my students live in poverty or have experienced trauma. 25% of my students are English Language Learners. Our school serves students from all over the world. I am challenged with overcoming the learning gap and providing an authentic learning environment where students can reach their full potential.

My Project

My kindergarten students will use these materials during literacy centers. They will learn problem-solving skills as they design and construct. They will develop oral language skills as they share and converse with friends. They will build fine motor skills as they manipulate the small pieces, helping to build the muscles in their hands. These materials will help create a fun and engaging learning opportunity where students feel successful and motivated to learn.

These materials, including letter and sight word stamps, phonemic awareness sorting activities, and sequencing cards, would give my students access to learning in an authentic, interactive, and adaptive way.

They would allow for my students to engage in literacy practice at their level. My English Language Learners would have access to vocabulary building. Students who struggle to work independently will demonstrate longer time on task. These materials have the potential to impact the learning of my students greatly.
