My Students

"I am a 'CAN DO KID'!" These are the words you will hear my students chanting throughout the school year. I want my students to believe in themselves and love learning. I love teaching kindergarten because the students have so much enthusiasm and excitement for school. They come eager to learn and excited for what the day will bring.

I want to instill a lifelong love for reading in each of my students.

We fill the classroom with books that fulfill a variety of reading levels and interests. We provide ample opportunities to read books, listen to books, and act out books.

I have a classroom of 24 kindergarten students with varying backgrounds, ethnicity, and needs and abilities. We are a Title 1 school with many of our students qualifying for free and reduced lunch . Some of our students come to us with years of preschool experiences and others come with no previous school experience.

My Project

I have requested materials to improve phonics for my students. I want to challenge those who are mastering phonics easily, and I want to give the students who are English Language Learners a jump start! These games and literacy activities will excite my students and keep them engaged, whether they are working independently, in a small group, or with me one-on-one.

I strongly believe that using games and activities encourages learners to interact, cooperate, to be creative and spontaneous while using the language in a meaningful way.

I want to see my students be successful and have fun while they learn!
