My Students

Our kindergarten students are a culturally diverse group of children, a mix of Hawaiin, Filipino, Caucasian, Korean, Japanese, Micronesian, and Hispanic students. Our school is pre-school through 5th grade on the island of Maui, in Hawaii.

My kinders are happy, kind and caring children who are loving life at school.

They thrive and learn in play groups and smaller groups with 4-6 students and the teacher.

This school year we focusing on creating colorful small group learning games for reading and math. The students in our grade level are reviewing colors, and having their games in color makes it more fun.

My Project

Using this color printer copier for our 85 kindergarteners will be so exciting. Our teachers print many manipulatives and learning games to create fun and creative learning tools.This year we are focusing on our small group learning centers in reading and math.

Using games and colorful hands-on materials make directions easier for our kinders of all learning backgrounds to become independent learners.

Sharing this resource with my grade level teachers will reach all of our kindergarten students. Colorful pictures associated with words leads to "reading is learning". Visual cues are helpful for all students to make a colorful learning connection.
