Many of my students come from families who are in the midst of financial hardships, and because of this, all students in this school are eligible for free breakfast and lunch. It is my ultimate goal as a teacher to provide them with as many opportunities and as much support in the classroom as I can.
My role as a kindergarten teacher is to love my students first and teach them second.
In my classroom, we learn through social-emotional learning, we support each other, we celebrate the little victories, and we keep our heads held high when life gets tough.
My students have proven to me how resilient they can be and how they can make the best of whatever hardships get thrown their way. Financial support for my students will, not only relieve some of the burden from their families who already struggle financially, but it would also allow me to be able to provide them with the necessary learning resources that they need and deserve.
My students love reading! Favorites in my class are Bob books. These are books that my students can read independently and confidently. I use these books to assess student reading strengths. If a student can read the first boo with ease, they move up to the next one, and then the next.
With only a few sets of these books in my classroom of 25, students have grown accustom to waiting a few days for their turn to read to the teacher.
This makes for a slow assessment process. With more copies of these books, I will be able to help students move through the books at their own pace instead of them having to wait for their day to read the book to me before advance them to the next.
