My Students

As a kindergarten teacher, I witness kindergarteners entering their first official year in school reading at various levels. They vary from learning that books are read from left to right, to reading pictures and beginning to sound out words. Throughout the school year, I focus on helping students develop a love for reading!

Kindergarteners love books that are engaging, fun, and love stories that spark their imagination!

With a new group of kindergarteners starting school in the fall, I look forward to building their reading muscles as they become strong and avid readers by the end of the year, in addition to helping them develop a love for reading!

My Project

Enjoyable and appealing books will help my kindergarteners develop a passion and love for reading. I strive to have a classroom library where students learn how to choose books to read at their level, while having a wide variety of high interest books to choose from. Maintaining an organized and functional classroom library will assist students in learning the process of choosing books they can and love to read.

With an organized classroom library and a wide range of books for students to choose from, students will learn the joy of reading and gain the independence of choosing their own book to read at their reading level.

In addition to having an organized and leveled classroom library, students will learn how to take care of books and the basic organizational structure of our classroom library by accessing books from book bins. Books will be color coded and labeled so they understand the genre of book they are choosing to read. Practicing and developing stronger reading muscles everyday will help students learn how to read throughout the school year!
