My Students

My school is Title I, and our students come from a variety of backgrounds. Students in my school and classroom come from a variety of homes including single parent, both parents working, stay at home mom or dad, other family members living in their home, homeless/living in hotels or with family, etc. We have a growing population of English as a Second Language (ESL) students which impacts our classrooms as well. Our school is beginning to focus on Personalized Learning, which allows students to work on standards to meet their needs and goals.

My Project

One of the most exciting parts of kindergarten is how we develop and perfect early literacy skills and start to use these skills to read about the world and to write about our experiences! In our school, we place a high value on written instruction. When students are able to use language and phonics skills together to express themselves, magic happens! These notebooks contain age-appropriate handwriting lines, which will help my young authors to develop fine motor skills, practice sentence mechanics, and cultivate good penmanship. They also feature places to illustrate their responses and written pieces. The notebooks are too costly for our school supply list but would help my authors develop lifelong skills of expressing themselves.
