My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher at a school with a diverse population. We serve middle-class students, military students, and low-income families. No matter the background, my students come to school ready to learn. They love to learn new things, they love to read, and they love to explore. It is my job to make sure this zest for learning never dies.

My superheroes have encouraged me to grow as a teacher!

They continually surprise me, on a daily basis, with their ability to learn and grasp concepts! I wouldn't change my job in a million years! My students leave an imprint on my heart, for they are kind, affectionate, and loving!

My Project

Do you remember when you opened a book for the first time, and you were able to read it from start to finish? The feeling of excitement was overwhelming, and all you wanted to do was read another book! Well that is the kind of excitement I want to instill in my kindergartners! Luckily, my students have that fire for reading, and I want to keep it going by supplying them with books on their level. In a perfect world, all my students would be on level; however, sadly that is not the case. The Rigby books I am requesting are leveled readers perfect for teaching my superheroes how to read!

Some of the titles I am requesting are; The Flying Fish, Katie's Butterfly, Horses, and Soccer at the Park.

I have used several Rigby books in my instruction in small groups and independently with my students. I enjoy these books because they align with state testing, and my students enjoy these books because they are leveled. As they read, they move up to the next level which helps increase their self-confidence in reading!

My students have just finished Middle of the year testing, and I am proud to say that most of my superheroes have done extremely well and moved up several levels. Unfortunately, I do not have enough books at these higher levels which is why I am requesting more leveled readers. I need your help to prepare my students with the proper leveled books that they need! Together, we can make a difference in the life of a child! Thank you for your support!
