My Students

My Kindergarten students are eager learners who attend school in a high-poverty STEM school district in Texas. Over 85% of my students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. All of my students receive free breakfast. My students are sweet, happy children who are excited about learning. Kindergarten begins the foundation of learning academic and social skills which will carry the students successfully through their academic years. I want to provide resources to help my students have a successful year in Kindergarten!

My Project

My Kindergarten students love working and learning in their very own journals! By using journals in the classroom, my students are able to work independently in a structured format.

My students feel so grown up and proud as they practice and apply reading and math concepts successfully in their journals.

I love that the journals will track student progress! The My Alphabet Journals will be used, in small group and independently, to learn and practice letter formation. The Dot and Learn! Phonemic Awareness Journals will be used during small group reading instruction. My Kindergarten students will be jumping for joy when they are able to use the dot and learn markers in their journals. Concepts in the My First Sight-Words Journals and Numbers Through Twenty Journals will be introduced in small groups, before students work independently. Journals are excellent resources to help students practice and apply reading and math skills in an engaging way!
