My Students

I teach a dynamic group of fabulous kindergarten students in an​ extremely diverse school in New York. My students love reading funny stories, writing, poetry, creating art, exploring in science, learning new words, building, dancing, singing, playing math games, playing with puppets, and learning new facts. We are obsessed with our composting worm bin!

My class absolutely loves our beloved puppet, Chef Lotsa Words.

He cooks up sight words, poems, vocabulary words, and books each day in his "magic" pot. My students are funny, enthusiastic, inquisitive, compassionate, and sweet.

My Project

My kindergarten class is going to set up a composting worm bin in our classroom. Last year, my students were obsessed with our worm bin, and I know that my students are going to love being worm experts this year. We are going to learn about how to set up a composting worm bin, what to feed our worms, and the best moisture conditions for our bin. In the spring, we are going to add worm castings to our school garden! I would love us to show our worm bin pride each Wednesday with all of us wearing matching "Ask Me About My Worms" t-shirts! It will be a Wiggling Worm Wednesday celebration each week! I know that my students will love answering questions from other kids and teachers in the school! We could use more books about worms including Wiggle and Waggle to add to our worm book bin.

Your donation will help my students to show the school community that we are proud to be worm experts!
