My Students

Kindergarten is a place of curiosity, discovery and exploration. Students spend their time in kindergarten learning foundational skills that are the building blocks of knowledge in their lives. My goal is to instill in them a thirst for learning that excites their minds and challenges them to learn more.

My students are eager learners, exploring the world around them.

Some students are able to read and some are still learning their letters. My goal is to make my classroom library completely differentiated so that each student's needs are met.

My Project

I need interesting books on topics that are exciting to kindergarten students. These books will help my students build their confidence in reading. They include a mix of fiction and non-fiction with vivid photographs. Sight words are easily recognizable in the emergent readers and the leveled books will provide challenge as skills develop and grow.

It's all about supporting a growth mindset and resilience in students.

Our school is fortunate enough to be able to teach character traits and participates in the Positivity project. We focus on a character trait a week and these books will help students understand these concepts.
