My Kindergarteners are from low income families. Our school is 100% free breakfast and lunch. I have a lot of English as a Second Language students in my class. Not many have been to preschool or Headstart. They are eager to learn and love coming to school! I am always amazed at how quickly they pick up letters and sounds. They make me a better teacher because I have a lot of opportunities to grow and learn how to best help them.
The Let's Find Out weekly readers provide a Fun Friday reading activity incorporating Social Studies and Science. The students read the weekly reader, watch the video on the topic, play the games on the smart board and do the writing activity, which keeps them engaged and excited. The weekly reader is tied to the Common Core, which supports my lesson plans. The weekly reader introduces the students to topics and events they would not necessarily learn about, such as how dolphins communicate. They also tie into a lot of the holidays we talk about and celebrate in class such as President's day and Dr. Seuss' Day.
