My Students

We are a brand new school in a growing community in Katy, TX! My students are a curious, creative group who love to explore their world around them! They are intrigued by science and stories and LOVE to read! Each morning we start our day with Readers Workshop. This is extremely import time for my students to develop their reading and overall literacy skills. They also love this as a relaxing start to their day to cozy into a good book by themselves and with a partner.

Our year had an interesting start when after only 8 full days in the classroom, Hurricane Harvey arrived and flooded our neighborhoods.

We were out for 11 days and several of our families became displaced or flooded. Despite all the uncertainty and change, my students have weathered the storm and come out on top. It has made our class even closer.

My Project

Kindergarten is an amazing grade level! Students are discovering the joy of reading. They are learning that books can take them on great adventures and teach them so much. Reading aloud is our favorite time of the day. It is a time that we come together and let a book take us to a new place. I have asked for engaging mentor texts to read across the curriculum that will excite my class and further instill their love for books. We also need high-quality, leveled readers to guide and aid children in their transition as independent readers!

Your generous donation will help improve achievement, build a culture of readers, and foster a love of literature.

Thank you for taking the time to read about this project and considering a donation to help get quality literature in the hands of these eager readers.
