When you enter our 21st century kindergarten classroom, not only will you see Play-doh, building blocks, and paints, you will also see tablets, interactive whiteboards, and laptops. My students are a busy group of learners, eager to grow their mindsets and challenge themselves to do better and be better every day.
Our class is a melting pot of cultures.
Many of my students have just moved to our country and are just learning English; while others have lived here all their lives, but are experiencing school for the first time. Our school is a Title I school with over twenty-seven languages spoken. We also have the privilege of teaching children from military families. We are a community committed to providing the best education possible to all of our amazing students.
Our school is about to lose its Title I status, so it will be a long time before we get any new funding to purchase materials such as guided reading books to help our students reach their reading goals. My students are in need of more books at their grade level or above. This set will not only provide them with enough books to get a new book almost every day, but it will also provide quality books that are high interest and build on one another. My students will also be able to take books home to read to their families, which I haven’t been able to do due to lack of books in various reading levels.
