My Students

We are a small school in a rural community. In my Young Fives classroom, the children are old enough for kindergarten but not ready for it. They will need another year for either social or academic growth or both.

My students come from rural low-income families that need the opportunity to experience new things.

The children have little to no school experiences. I try to give them hands-on learning experiences that will develop their skills and a love for learning.

My Project

I want to give my student the opportunity to listen to and look at good literature. I will read the books and then the books will be displayed on a book shelf for all children to read. My classroom bookshelf is open to all of the students throughout the school day and they are drawn to this corner of our room. Children are fascinated by books, especially books about animals and their lifestyles.

My hope is that having more books to share with my children will allow them to become great readers and instill a love for reading that will last them a lifetime.
