My Students

My Kindergarten students come from a high poverty area and for many this is their first formal year of school. I want to help them foster a true love for reading from the start! My students love coming to school! Our school is a safe and positive learning environment. My students are special because they are affectionate, loving, resilient, and determined to succeed! Kindergarten is a fabulous year for students to gain strong reading skills that will last a lifetime!

My Project

These classroom books will provide incredible opportunities for my students to practice their reading skills on a daily basis and to become excellent readers! We would use our new library throughout the day for our Read Aloud lessons, DEAR (drop everything & read) time, small group instruction, and for our Mystery Reader Program. We will create lessons on Kindness and other Character traits. We will use them to supplement our curriculum specifically for Science and Social Studies. These books will enhance our study of other cultures, holidays and geography. Their worlds would be opened to new experiences and dreams for their future!
