My Students

My students are clever, creative, and full of energy! At this age, they love to learn and are so excited by all that school has to offer. They are little sponges ready to soak up any knowledge that they come in contact with in their environment.

It is my pleasure and my challenge to meet their interest and spark their love of learning.

They love materials to be bright and inviting! They can't wait to soak up the learning, so bring it on!

My Project

Students will reinforce math concepts for kindergarten by using these awesome math manipulative toolboxes! Each student will get their own box with manipulatives that align to major standards, and the toolbox provides lots of hands-on experience with everything from counting and base 10 to comparing numbers and building shapes.

We can use the toolboxes to review key concepts with a small or large group of student or encourage kids to practice building math skills on their own.

I can imagine my students enjoying taking ownership of their own materials and using them for daily problem solving. A class set of these toolboxes will be a wonderful addition to our classroom!
