My Students

My students represent a unique and diverse group of kindergarteners in an urban midwestern city. Their diversity is seen in many different ways, from cultural to economic to family. Several families have lived in the neighborhood for many years and have sent 2 or more generations of students to my school.

The children are energetic and excited to learn and make new friends.

They come with a multitude of learning styles and learning challenges. Half of my classroom consists of English Language Learners bringing several different languages from home which present unique opportunities and struggles.

Like most kindergarteners, they enjoy interactive activities and projects, love listening to and sharing their own stories, and do best with modeling and role play as they learn to navigate their academic world.

My Project

One of the important aspects of education is listening. Students are better able to learn letter sounds and words when they are able to listen without distraction. We utilize the Daily 5 approach to reading and writing. This involves many different aspects of literacy including listening to stories, playing with letters and their sounds, and working with words.

We utilize iPads in the classroom to help reinforce the daily teaching and learning of letter sounds, high frequency words, and comprehension.

Having a good quality, small group set of head phones, the students will be able to listen and focus on these components.
