My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher at a foreign language immersion school. I am privileged to work with forty-four, amazing children who are eager to learn and use any learning tools they are given. My kindergarteners will be learning and growing rapidly this school year. Students at this age are curious and love to explore. Through this curiosity, it is the best practice to meet the students’ needs in a variety of ways. My students are very important to me. I love to provide fun lessons in which my students will be engaged. My students are very curious, innovative and independent thinkers. Please help me empower my students!

My Project

Please help me give my students a listening center. My students love to listen and read Spanish books. They are learning to read independently in a fun way. My students are learning a second language and decoding is difficult in a second language. However, with Spanish books and a listening center, my kids will learn to love reading in a second language. They love their independence and the listening center is a powerful way to provide these learning opportunities for them. The listening center will give my students opportunities to control the stories they are reading and be able to control the volume. All my students are excited to participate in our weekly centers. Centers are a favorite activity for my students. The listening center is an amazing option in which they will be able to read and listen to a story in a second language. The listening center will allow my students to learn new words and the correct pronunciation. The listening center would make reading tremendously fun!
