Staying Focused in Kindergarten
The Cissna Park Education Foundation has provided Ms. Gooden’s Kindergarten classroom with items to help them stay focused. The students have been using privacy shields now for test taking. The shields help provide a more accurate result by keeping the students eyes on their own paper. They also enjoying having their own personal area.
Additionally, the Mini-grant provided the Kindergarten class with a document camera. This document camera has helped students better understand a concept by having a visual aide visible on the SmartBoard. Students can use and interact with the camera for show-n-tell, books, math manipulatives and even science experiments.
“These items are helping my students connect a variety of concepts in different ways” says Ms. Gooden.
