My Kindergartners reflect the world. We are composed of many types of learners. Some of which are refugees fleeing religious persecution. Our class motto is written, as follows: It is not about me; it is not about you; it is about us. We hold fast to the belief that everyone, even teachers, should never stop learning. Therefore, we strive to be a model for other students to follow inside and outside of the classroom.
Through thoughtful reflection, teaching with compassion, empathy, and sincere enthusiasm, our goal is to be transformed into autonomous learners.
These Kindergartners can be creatures of habit. They may get stuck on reading one kind of book over and over again. With time, these books need to go to the book hospital, aka "tape station," for a reboot. As I look through the book in our classroom library, we have a lot of the same tattered titles.
My students need leveled books A through E and shelving for those amazing books.A love of reading of any sort is to be nurtured.
Their growth and the benefits they gain may expand if they were to explore more types of books. In that, having access to other kinds of books allows them to open up to reading other genres with increased vocabulary. My students will develop a broad world perspective, and become habitual in always have a stack of books to read in waiting. It is time to explore new genres of books at the student's reading level and we need a way to organize these books with shelving.
