My Students

My students are new, beginning learners. They are bright and come from many diverse backgrounds ready to learn. I love the endless possibilities that my students have brought into the classroom so far this school year. My students strive to take their learning to new levels and are always willing to learn about new and exciting things. They love to explore and enjoy helping each other to expand their knowledge and learning goals. They brighten my day each and every day.

My Project

The majority of my students have worked hard the past semester practicing their letter sounds and letter recognition skills. I'm so proud of how far they've come. I want to use the opportunity this upcoming semester to provide more rigorous learning in my classroom. In order to do that I feel that my students would best benefit from further writing instruction. My students have started working on sight words but I want to further that by including the introduction of labeling, sentence writing, and drawing into my day to day instruction.

The teaching easel will be used daily in order to reinforce concepts of writing as well as interactive learning.

I want my students to be able to gain more knowledge and further their writing skills throughout this next semester before moving onto first grade. It is a vital skill that they will need for the rest of their lives. These materials will help me as a teacher to better further their expanding knowledge of writing. The journals will help provide a begging stepping stone for my students to start their writing journeys as well as help enrich their minds on the importance of writing.
