My Students

My students come from the inner city, and 99% of my students are minorities. This will be my first year teaching kindergarten, and I have a passion to meet all of my learners' needs. I want to give them experiences that they may not have otherwise had.

This will be my first year teaching in a regular classroom, I do not have any materials to help me teach my students basic skills such as Math, Phonics, and Reading, or even basic supplies and materials such as paint, paintbrushes etc.

My Project

I would like to incorporate these materials into our daily 5 guided reading routine. Young students need to be able to listen to reading! This can provide a wonderful opportunity for children to hear their favorite books read aloud again and again. The more they listen, the greater the likelihood that they will learn new vocabulary words. And, when listening with a special friend, the opportunities for playing creatively and acting out parts of the story are endless.

Additionally, young students need to listen to reading so that they can hear narrators on tape because they tend to embellish their storytelling with silly voices and dramatic enhancements.

They emphasize reading as a source of pleasure rather than a skill and make children eager to learn how to read. Beyond their sheer enjoyment of audio books, children also develop a sense of narrative structure and understanding of language. Stories on tape help them to grasp the rich and various ways in which language distills and conveys meaning. In addition, exposing your child to a range of narrators and their different styles of reading will deepen his grasp of the reading process.
