My students enter the classroom with such excitement every day. Excitement to see their teachers, excitement to learn, and on Fridays, excitement that pizza is a lunch choice! Greetings filled with hugs and high fives are common at my classroom door at 7:50 a.m. This is only the start of a day filled with joy as we work to learn more each and every day.
My students are so genuinely happy to come to school and learn despite the obstacles placed in front of them.
I teach in a Title I school in South Carolina, where most students attending are a part of families living in poverty. Knowledge is of infinite value to all students but especially to mine. The best part about teaching them is seeing their desire to become rich with knowledge and to be a part of a classroom community that believes they can learn!
One important part of our day is our Reading Workshop time. During this time, I teach guided reading while my students work in literacy stations. In Kindergarten, one of the most significant skills learned is finding a book that is "just right" or on our level.
Using individual book bins will help guide my students in finding books that are just right for them when navigating the classroom library.
These bins will be labeled with student names so that they know exactly where to go to find books suitable for them and will make transitions in and out of the reading center a breeze!
