My Students

Literacy centers are a major component within the Kindergarten classroom.

We are a diverse group of Kindergrtners with varying levels of ability.

We are a Title One school located in the beautiful state of Florida. We love hands-on centers that teach us to read and set the framework for our futures. Our centers help us to become successful readers and lifelong learners.

My Project

Literacy centers make up one part of the reader's workshop. By having these materials students will have more hands-on experiences with learning phonics and phonemic awareness. For instance, with the phonics picture card library students will work in a pocket chart with different concepts such as beginning sounds, ending sounds, and rhyming words. Also, within my literacy centers I like to tie all content areas together, which is why I have asked for science based literacy materials. My students need a phonics picture card library, beginning/middle/ending sound stamps, science file folder games, 5 senses instant learning center, magnetic letters, and weekly Time readers. In addition, my students need highlighter tape, pointers, and Kindergarten paper to use with big books and for writing.

Kindergrtners come in with all levels of knowledge.

By providing literacy materials I am able to reach all of my students regardless of their level of knowledge or ability. When my classroom is filled with rich materials I am creating an environment for success and the love of school.
