My Students

My Kindergartners are fun, they are excitable and they each love a challenge to explore, learn and to grow in the classroom. Each is at his/her own level of learning; some of my students are learning to read, write, and count, while some of their classmates are identifying letters and imitating sounds. It is endearing to watch their eyes light up as they grasp a concept. Our room comes alive with music, dance and chatter. My kiddos love learning and exploring in a fun exciting environment.

In our classroom we have little artists, authors, illustrators, mathematicians, scientists and wanna be teachers.

We do not lack on the talent; our classroom is full of talent and love.

My kindergarteners are a community, building friendships and working as a team, and very accepting of one another's differences.

My students come from various backgrounds and not many of them are exposed to fluent reading in the home.

Some have little to no letter knowledge, or exposure while others come more prepared to read. However, they all come with one thing in common, a desire to learn and read.

My Project

My students have been reading and listening to a CD player without earphones most of this year. Our listening center is no longer operating and the need for a listening center is at the top of our priorities. In our Kindergarten classroom we run stations, one of our stations is a Reading and Listening Station. We have operated it fully this year by using a CD player I brought from home; it is an older CD player and does not have the headphone jacks. My students who are at this station listen to a book on CD; while listening they have the book in front of them, and are following along. Students at the Reading and Listening Center are also given the opportunity to put their thoughts into basic writing. They are developing the skills of expressing themselves in and through art as well as the ability to sequence. It is not possible for the children at this station to have the volume too loud because of the distraction it causes to other children in the class. I have some students with sensory integration problems, and the background noise of the CD playing is over-stimulating for them, and causes anxiety which triggers behaviors.

Numerous kids are kinesthetic learners therefore the multisensory approach of seeing and hearing the words auditory will better solidify their understanding of print, their reading development, and will increase vocabulary.

When they are hearing the words and see the pictures they gain a greater understanding of their world around them, being able to understand their world around them opens up a realm of learning.
