My Students

I teach kindergarten in an inner city school in Flint, Michigan.The majority of our students come to us below grade level and have little academic support at home due to the life circumstances of their families.

My Kindergarten classroom is full of students that work hard each day and want to do great in school!

Each day these students come in with a drive to want to learn things, simple or hard.

These students are eager to learn, but need a lot of additional support in all subject areas, in order for them to be successful in their future endeavors.

My Project

These materials would help my students with making learning fun. The worksheets, activities and interactive websites i have found on teachers pay teachers would help with making learning fun! The individual carpet circles will give the students a sense of responsibility in the classroom. The whisper phones will help the students hear themselves during group time and keep the volume lower for better success during reading time. The whisper phones will also be a wonderful tool for me to be able to hear my students individually read and help with the skills they need extra help with.
