    My Students

    Through our play-based kindergarten program, t Our class of 25 junior and senior kindergarten students are given regular opportunities to explore with open-ended materials which encourage imagination, problem solving and creativity. We are preparing our youngest generation for unknown professions and feel it is imperative to fuel children’s curiosity and appetite for learning. This love of learning, along with the skills to communicate, problem-solve, collaborate and self-regulate, will lead to life-long success no matter their path in life.

    How will this project impact them?

    Whether creating works of art or engaging in STEM activities, children experiment, test ideas, and build their understanding of the world using open-ended materials. Oral language and literacy skills are developed as they play with others and share what they have learned. Because many of our open-ended materials have been purchased at “Dollar stores,” the goal of this proposal for Wintergreen’s 40 for 40, is to provide our kindergarteners with engaging learning experiences using loose parts and other open-ended materials which allow them to continue to innovate, create, collaborate and communicate. I would be thrilled to be able to enrich the learning experiences in our kindergarten classroom!

I have been teaching at St. John XXIII School for the last 13 years. My heart is in the primary division, as I have spent all these years in 1/2 day kindergarten, Grade 1 and Full Day Kindergarten (for the last 5 years). I love exploring and learning with my kindergarteners as we make ...
