I have taught 15 years in kindergarten and 4 years in PreK. I also do presenting about my classroom for SDE all around the country. I LOVE meeting kindergarten teachers, almost as much as my kindergartners.
I don't make things for TPT, I make things for my classroom and when I have time, post them here to share! I love to hear from other teachers about what works for them. In my classroom, I love to make them laugh! We work hard to build a strong community in our classroom. We do lots of hands-on learning, we are always making connections, and we always ask "How?" and "Why?". I LOVE kindergarten!
