My Students

My class is an energetic, excited and overwhelmingly enthusiastic group of Kindergarteners . They are a funny, dedicated, and inquisitive group of students who run into the classroom and don't want to leave! They are four and five-year-old students who need lessons and activities to keep them engaged in learning. Our school is a new school with pre-kindergarten through second-grade students. Our school has a high population of English Language Learners, Special Education students, and students from various cultural backgrounds. Our students need a high level of support for them to learn at their best.

My Project

We are starting off a new school year and most of my kindergarten students do not have the knowledge of letter names and sounds yet. Because we know that letter sound knowledge is essential when it comes to teaching our students to read, we need these alphabet books that will help our students to learn the alphabet. Once these alphabet books are added to our classroom library, students will use them to identify letters in the book, and learn what sounds they make by naming the pictures.

These alphabet books will help our students develop a strong foundation for reading.

These picture books will keep my young kindergarten readers engaged during reading workshop. While reading these ABC books with a partner, students will also try to add more words to each page, or guess what words might come next. Students will also compare and contrast different alphabet books and see what is the same and different in those alphabet books.
