My Students

I have a diverse group of curious, loving and active five and six year old kindergarten students in my classroom. They represent different races, ethnicities, cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds. My students also come from a wide range of family structure (e.g., two-parents, single parents, divorced parents and grandparents raising them). The students also exhibit a wide range of academic skills as well as physical and social skills.

My students enjoy the classroom community where they are learning new things and are given the opportunity to practice their new skills, ideas and creativity.

They also delight in the daily occasion to communicate with their classmates and teachers.

I teach in a public, suburban elementary school that offers open- enrollment to students living outside of the district. The school population consists of 466 students with the majority of our students being white or African American. The majority of our students come from low-income families.

We have 68% of our student families eligible for free or reduced-rate school lunch. Our school environment houses elementary students in self-contained classrooms grades preschool thru grade 4.

My Project

A writing center will give my students a special area where they can practice skills needed to produce great writers. It will be an inviting area where four children will work at the same time during small group center time.

A wide variety of materials will be provided and organized at this station so the children are motivated and focused to explore writing (e.g., a variety of paper, pencils, markers, wipe-off boards, blank cards, books and notepads, etc.)!

They will learn to respect the area and the materials given. It will be an area where students will be enticed to create and write cards, letters, lists, stories, signs, etc.

It is important to provide writing opportunities to help students develop fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination and literacy. It is also a place where the students can develop a positive attitude toward writing. They can develop their writing together and help each other.
