My Students

My students are curious, eager to learn, and creative. Being young learners, Kindergarten students love exploring the classroom. My students love books, hands on activities, and being able to play a part in their own learning based on their interests.

My students are part of our classroom family.

I hope the best for them and want them to be able to be immersed in a variety of engaging, effective classroom experiences. These young learners come to school so excited about learning and I hope to encourage this throughout the year.

My Project

A classroom is a community, but it is very tricky to treat it as so when you do not have a common meeting place.

This rug would provide the essential place for my students to gather during whole group discussion, morning meetings, and any whole group meeting time!

In addition to this, the squares on the rug foster learning with colors and letters. The squares on this carpet also make it easy to move children around and assign them spaces for better classroom management!

This carpet will provide the perfect common meeting place for my students for years and years!
