My Students

I have a lovely group of Kindergarten students who are eager to learn new things every day. They are learning their letters and sounds, how to read, write, count, and many other things that are tied into our daily routine.

Each student learns in a different way so I try to incorporate a variety of learning strategies to ensure that each child need's are met and that are learning something everyday.

I am looking forward to an incredible year of leaning with my students.

My Project

Having these books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create everyday. These beginner books will help motivate my students to read! They will be allowed to take these books home with them so they can read with their parents.

These books will allow my students to read independently at their own grade level.

The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word.
