I have curious, energetic, creative, inspiring, and eager-to-learn kindergarten students in my classroom each year. I lead an organized, focused and differentiated learning environment with access to materials that address each need among various subject disciplines.
At the end of each year, and continuously throughout their educational journey, I want my students to be confident learners, seekers of knowledge and great citizens for our school, their families and the community around us.
I work diligently for each student to be challenged daily and be the best that they can be, where he or she is at, in their kindergarten journey and beyond.
I have 19 full-time kindergarten students and 4 additional developmental students that "push-in" for fifty percent of the day in the school year 2019-2020.
They all arrive with a variety of interests, talents, backgrounds and specific emotional and physical needs. All my students need fluid transitions, a prepared, print-rich, and organized environment, sensory breaks and consistent encouragement to keep them focused and ready for each task ahead. My school is an amazing family of strong leaders and teachers, support staff, parents, and community members.
These materials are perfect for young learners to practice and secure important phonics skills. I have daily literacy rotations while I work in small groups and this set would engage minds independently and collaboratively with a meaningful focus. I can quickly assess what they know as they complete and match up each sound card. I know my students will be very excited about the fun objects they can touch and place down. I try to stay away from worksheets as much as I can! With the addition and use of this kit, my students will become better readers, writers, successful at spelling and eager learners!
