I teach a diverse group of twenty-eight kindergarteners in a high poverty neighborhood. Every morning my students enter our classroom with a lot of energy and an appetite for learning. I can see their eyes quickly scan the room to see what exciting learning opportunities await.
I teach at one of the most diverse schools in the country!
I absolutely love it! My students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, but they all love to learn and experience new things. As their teacher, it is my goal to motivate my students and teach the whole child.
All of my kindergartners come from a wide range of backgrounds, languages, and academic abilities. Many of them come from families living in poverty and face many challenges. They come to school every day excited to learn. They are a great group of kids who love school and love learning!
As a teacher, I strive to bring excellent literature into my kindergarten classroom. My students need to be exposed to books with characters of diverse backgrounds so that they can relate to the characters. I teach at a very diverse school where many students speak two languages. It is important that they see themselves in the books they read in order to make connections.
By reading these books, I will be able to open up discussions about similarities/differences, acceptance, tolerance, and celebration!
The books that I have chosen celebrate multiculturalism and also teach tolerance for those that are different from you. Kindergarteners are like sponges. They will learn key skills as I bring these amazing books to our class.
