This is my first year in kindergarten! I love the different dynamics of a kindergarten class. These little learners are so sweet and eager! My students are English language learners. Many students in my class have never been in school prior to this year.
I try to make learning fun, and memorable as kindergarten sets the tone for their first educational experiences in a school.
We learn through hands-on activities, games, and lot of movement! My students love to learn in new ways and enjoy being a part of a small group where skills are broken down for them to be able to understand and master the skill.
My students come from very diverse backgrounds and each has their own unique learning styles. We love to read and write when we're together. Sometimes I, as the teacher, need to think out of the box on how to approach new topics so that my students can understand the teaching point.
Standard chairs are so restricting! Lets get these students moving to support their learning. Flexible seating allows students a chance to be comfortable while they work. In a traditional kindergarten classroom, students tend to wiggle and squirm in an attempt to get comfortable or to expend excess energy.
Students who are allowed to make choices are more likely to be engaged with their work and less likely to distract others around them.
Both options create a comfortable learning environment where students will be allowed to reach their fullest potential. Having the wobble stools and the portable lap desk, will help accommodate students who need to move around to succeed in learning!
