My Students

My students come to one of the most neglected elementary schools in the city, as it is located in a high poverty area, with very little parental involvement and constant security concerns. This neighborhood lies in a flood zone, often creating excessive absences during inclement weather conditions for students who walk to school.

This is a Title I school, in a military city, where 100% of our population receives free breakfasts, snacks and lunches every day.

Despite these obstacles in many of their lives, I am fortunate that they give me 110% each day. We greet each other with hugs every morning, work smart throughout the day and have a lot of fun learning. For that reason, these students deserve to feel like their education matters. Every year funds are more scarce and supplies are limited, however, the need to succeed is still necessary.

My Project

The science and/or literacy materials chosen will not only allow kindergarten students to experience the real world; they will be able to share what they are learning with their families at home.

The non-fiction magazines align with what is being taught in our kindergarten classrooms and the students will be excited to experience a variety of collaboration activities with their families at home.

The magazines will be introduced, discussed and reviewed before sending them home with students, so that they will be able to discuss the content with confidence.

The Rebus-Readers will be used during small group instruction, further reinforcing our non-fiction learning content.
