My Students

My Kindergarten students are diverse, multi-lingual, multi-cultural sponges of new knowledge. They are inquisitive and respectful. They are curious and kind.

They absolutely deserve a classroom they can be proud of and materials that are quality and reliable.

As the area is diverse it is also a low socio-economic area where breakfast and lunch are provided daily for every student. The majority of my students are English Language Learners and English is not their first language nor spoken at home.

My Project

We have brand new STEM books in our literacy curriculum on the way for the fall, but most are big books. Our classroom hasn't had a big book display in years. Lakeshore offers this item for a reasonable price, and they're always of good quality.

It might seem like a simple request, but this item would make storytime and whole group instruction so much easier and accessible for all students.

Using this allows us to store and take care of our new books and allows me to be hands-free while reading or using the below board to emphasize vocabulary or other activities.
