My Students

"A place for everything and everything in its place!" A typical day in our kindergarten classroom is much like a busy beehive. Many workers swarming around like busy bees and lots of engaged learning taking place. My students just need a place to keep our exciting and engaging books!

In our school and classroom, the learning is based on Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligence.

We believe "It's not how smart you are, but HOW you are smart!" The students in my classroom are smart in many ways and they need to have materials to help them with organization. The boys and girls in my classroom are eager and excited new readers that would LOVE to have a special place for keeping books that we read aloud daily.

My Project

With the new book display case, my students would have a special place for keeping our most beloved read aloud books. The boys and girls in my classroom adore being read to daily and try their best to take very good care of our most treasured books. We would all really enjoy having a special space to display the books so the students can see them for each monthly theme. Having this book display case would encourage them as new readers, make them even more excited about the learning that takes place in our classroom and eager to learn new reading skills.

By having this project funded and allowing us to get the new display case, my classroom appearance would be greatly enhanced.

I would be able to display treasured classics and read aloud books that my students would love to hear. My students would be able to value reading while also learning to be organized. It would truly make our lives in the classroom better!
