My Students

The students in my kindergarten class come from average to low-income areas and have varying needs. They come from many different backgrounds and are trying to access information and language as fast as they can, so they can keep up with their counterparts. They have a love for knowledge and learning. They always try their best and have the faith to keep moving forward. They are a remarkable group of children that I admire because they try so hard and succeed.

My Project

I have created this project "Books, Books, Books!" so the students in my classroom can have a variety of different books to read and interact with. It is important to expose children to all kinds of books to help them enjoy reading and to spark creativity and imagination. Children who engage with books at an early age are more likely to become avid readers. I want my students to love books and to become avid readers. I want my students to remember their time in kindergarten with fond memories of books, learning, and fun. Please help my students get excited about books and learning.
