My Students

My students are a bunch of very enthusiastic learners. They come to school every day ready to learn. My kindergarten students are a very diverse group with the majority of them learning English as their second language.

Our school is an inner city school where 100% of our students are entitled to free breakfast and lunch.

Many of their parents work two jobs and can only afford basic necessities. We also have a program where we send home food on the weekends for our neediest families.

My Project

Kindergarten is a fun year where you get the opportunity to introduce the majority of your students to school. Some of my students have previously had some pre-k experience, but the majority of them have not. Therefore, I have a lot of varying degrees of ability in my classroom. In my math class, I have a few students who can already count to 100 mixed in with a bunch who can't count past 10. We use Daily 3 math (math independently, math with a partner and math writing) to help combat the varying levels, however, that leads to so many different levels of games and activities.

Having a variety of games and activities available for my students is necessary!

I am requesting these storage shelves so that each shelf only contains the activities for that component of Daily 3. The three drawers will contain different levels of each activity that the students will be able to go to and pull games that meet their needs. I will also be able to house these materials in different spots in my classroom so that they always have access to their materials. I am also requesting laminating pouches so that I can continually make more games that will last that meet my students' needs.
