I have a classroom full of exuberant Kindergartners. They are energetic, fun-loving, and creative. Some of them dance all over the school from standing in the bathroom line to outside on the playground during recess. Others are jokesters who like to tell jokes and pull pranks on their friends. There are also some who love to write, read, act, play and tell stories.
However, all of them are eager to learn!
My goal is to bring them the most engaging and exciting learning experiences possible.
Kindergarten lays the foundation for the rest of young children's lives. Kids learn number sense, addition, subtraction, phonemes, letter recognition, and sight words. One of the most important skills, though, is reading. Kindergarten is often the beginning of students' emergent reading skills.
Reading is necessary for the development of nearly every life and academic skill.
People cannot work, read signs, go shopping, follow written directions, or anything else without having the skill of reading to aid them in those tasks. Developing reading skills enable children to learn independently and explore the world around them in a more aware manner.
Guided reading is one of the best ways to help children learn to read. Guided reading meets children where they are, and aids them to "level up" as their reading skills grow and strengthen over the course of their journey. A leveled guided reading library is just what my students need to bring this growth to life.
