My Students

My kindergarten students come to class everyday with a big smile on their faces. They walk into my classroom and see a huge sign that reads "You can do anything". This is a quote that I want my students to remember for the rest of their lives.

Kindergarten is the model for lifelong learning.

I want my students to enjoy learning for the rest of their lives. I am hopeful to inspire our earliest learners to become enthusiastic and motivated learners.

My Project

I have felt like morning work was not always the best fit for the needs of my classroom. While I think morning work can be a great review of skills in the classroom, I had trouble feeling like I was just filling a few minutes that I needed to get lunch count in, wait for tardy students, and check daily folders. With these stem activities it will allow my students to enjoy and challenge themselves early in the morning. My class is divided into six different groups. With these stem activities, each table will be able to get a new morning tub filled with an activity every morning. I am asking for Tinkertoys, K'Nex Zoo Friends Construction toys, and Connectics Magnetic Tiles, to name just a few.
