My Students

I teach kindergarten in Philadelphia and my children are from all cultures, areas, and various income levels. My energetic Kindergarteners enter the classroom ready to learn, discover, and explore. They come to school every day excited to learn in a classroom that is warm and inviting.

My classroom is set up for my children to learn through small groups instruction.

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and various learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met.

My Project

My students will use the Reading Tote Bags to keep their books neat and organized. They will be able to keep the books that they choose for independent writing in an easy to access place. This will reduce the time my students spend on choosing new books.

The Reading Tote Bags will help my students to become exceptional independent readers.

They will be able to choose good fit books books that interest them and keep them easily available in their Reading Tote Bags. The best way for my Kindergarten students to become better readers is to read more, and these Reading Tote Bags will help them to do that.
