My Students

Most of what I really need to know I learned in kindergarten." - Robert Fulghum

My school is located in a high poverty neighborhood, where many families are struggling and almost all students receive free lunch.

My class consists of 20 kindergarten students. Nearly all of the students speak English as a second language and their parents do not speak or read English at all. All of the students are very excited to be in kindergarten. They are all very eager to learn.

My Project

A literacy center can be described as “a small area within the classroom where students work alone or together to explore literacy activities independently while the teacher provides small-group guided reading instruction” (Ford & Opitz). During Literacy Centers students will be able to use these materials in small groups, without teacher guidance. These activities will reinforce skills already taught, while allowing me time to work with small groups. Students will use the Fishing for Sight Words, Roll and Read Sight Word Game and the Write and Wipe Sight Words to review sight words which will help students build reading fluency. Students will use the Building Words and Stack and Build Simple Words to practice sounding out and building three-letter words which will help students learn to spell words on their own.

Using these materials during Literacy Centers will give students the extra practice they need.

The more practice students get through multiple exposures, the more likely they are to retain the information being taught.

This will hopefully allow more students to be on grade level at the end of the year. This will also ensure that my students are better prepared for first grade.
