Welcome to Kindergarten!

Hello!  
I am Ms. Howell and I am very excited to be teaching Kindergarten at Ridgeland Elementary School.  Be prepared!  We will have a lot going on in our classroom.  
We have some exciting news!  We have received two Donor's Choose awards!  The first is a set of Bee Bot Programmable Robots and the second is a brand new Listening Center!  We are very excited to receive these classroom resources and are very grateful to the donors who generously provided funding.  Stay tuned to see pictures of the students using these materials.

We also entered the PlayFoam Challenge contest and our class received a free case of PlayFoam!  The children used the PlayFoam to participate in a group activity in art class to create a giant turtle.  They had so much fun mixing colors and piecing together the turtle shell.  The finished project is amazing!  We will be submitting a picture of our completed project to the PlayFoam Instagram for the big contest.  If our project is selected as the winner, we could win $500 worth of classroom materials!  Pictures will be coming soon.
