My Students

Kindergarteners by their very nature are curious and excited about the world around them. My students are observers and story tellers; they are hard working and inquisitive. They show a desire to learn and love collaborating with one another. As we spend time learning to read and write throughout the year, I also want to provide them with the tools to collaborate effectively and interact positively on a social level.

My students have a variety of backgrounds and personal experiences, but they all share the desire to learn more about the world around them.

They enjoy working with one another and sharing their ideas and experiences. We are a small school in a rural community where people are close-knit and supportive of one another, which carries over into our school environment. We work hard in our school to provide a variety of avenues and opportunities for our students to learn and become life-long learners.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy. I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! By adding these books to our classroom library, we will have the opportunity to work on reading comprehension skills. As the teacher, I will model fluent reading and guide the students towards a deeper understanding of the text.

With these new books, my students will develop a love for reading as well as learn the necessary skills to become successful readers and writers in the future.

Students will be engaged as they develop literacy skills due to the high interest text. Little learners will build important foundations in literacy.

I already have the materials to use with these books to guide students through retelling, word work, interactive text, comprehension strategies, vocabulary and interactive crafts. With the addition of the required text, I look forward to engaging my little readers.
