My Students

My students are an exciting group of mixed interests and abilities. All of my students are learning to read, write, and count, all while having fun! Engagement and involvement in my kindergarten classroom is directly linked to student success. I want to instill a love for learning this year and my wish is for that love to continue to grow even when they leave our building!

My hope is to create an environment that promotes a ZEST for life-long learning!

My Project

I try to keep learning hands-on, fun, and creative! A few ways to do this is by utilizing dry erase boards and different kinds of writing tools. Dry erase boards can be easily available and used for every skill! Dry erase boards help our environment by saving paper. Another way to keep writing fun is letting students use different kinds writing tools such as colored pencils and pens.

Having these writing tools will make my students more excited about writing!

I hope you consider contributing to this project. I am so excited to have this in my writing center after spring break!
