My Students

"There is so much more to a book than just the reading." Maurice Sendak

Our students are a fun, loving, and energetic group of kindergartners.

In our class, 75% of our students come from a home where English is their second language. A large number of these students have very little academic support from their parents and many are living in poverty. We are lucky to have a beautiful campus however, our school is struggling to meet the needs of our students as our resources are very limited and the needs are so great.

My Project

With this interactive easel, our students would be able to use this to expand upon books we have read during literacy centers. There are so many ways that we plan on using this easel. Students can use the flannel board to practice many skills such as graphing, retelling stories, sorting and patterning. On the magnetic white board, our students will be able to practice their writing skills during interactive writing lessons. They will also be able to practice building words with magnetic letters. The big book holder on this easel will make our shared reading more efficient. Shared reading is an effective teaching technique we have been using to strengthen early literacy skills with our students. Since the easel is mobile, we will be able to use it in many different areas of the classroom and throughout our day.

Kindergarten is where students build the foundation for a lifetime of reading.

This donation will give our students the opportunity to dive deeper into stories and strengthen their comprehension skills. This easel will give student the space to work independently on learned literacy skills.
