My Students

I am blessed to work and learn with 17 curious and energetic five and six year old children in a public school in a small town in the Northeast.

These children have a natural desire to learn about and explore the world around them.

Their enthusiasm for school, learning, and life is downright contagious! We spend our time together as readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, thinkers, collaborators, and friends. We are lucky to be a part of a caring, innovative school community and families are actively involved in supporting their children's school engagement and success.

My Project

My kindergarten students are motivated and excited to become real-life authors! They have mastered their letters and sounds and want to apply their knowledge to writing stories and books. The Kinder Writing curriculum will allow me to teach them how to write in various genres, including narrative pieces, informational books, and opinion pieces.

The writing curriculum and picture books will provide my students with hands-on, daily practice with what writers do, in order for them to become authors themselves.

All of the picture books requested will become mentor texts for my students throughout the writing units and will provide concrete examples of the various writing styles. My students will be thrilled to eventually see their own published pieces on our library shelves next to these mentor texts!
