My Students

The kids at my school come to school each and every day energized and ready to learn. We are located in the great state of Nebraska. Our school is not a Title I school, so funding for extra supplies is not in the budget. There are students with family members serving in the military, students who are English Language Learners, and many more.

The students love to read and need more books that they can read independently.

Kindergarten is an important year of school for the children.

It is the first year they are working together as a team, so every child can succeed!

My Project

My students need guided reading books that are on their level so they practice the reading skills and strategies that will help them become better readers. These paired guided reading sets will allow the children to compare and contrast the differences between fiction and nonfiction text. The students will identify the differences between fact and fiction.

The books include titles about polar bears, crabs, ants, and hippos- these titles also correlate to our science curriculum!

The children will learn facts about each of the animals as well as about their animals habitats. The students can then compare and contrast the habitats of each animals and come to identify what animals needs to live and survive. One books is about Veteran's Day which we learn about in our social studies curriculum.

The students will then be able to write about what they are learning.
