My Students

Kindergarten is so much fun and so much hard work! My students are coming to school for the first time in my Kindergarten classroom and there are high expectations and many standards to master. They leave my class knowing so much more than they started with- how to hold a pencil, draw a picture, write their name, be a good friend- and in most cases they are reading and writing! They are ready to learn and absorb anything and everything I present to them.

The majority of my students come from low income homes with limited resources and little access to technology.

But when they are given the opportunity to use technology to learn, they come alive with excitement and the learning becomes tangible to them. Instead of looking at books with words that they don’t understand, they can listen to fluent readers while they follow along in their own books. This helps the students make sense of the pictures and words, while making reading fun and accessible to students of all levels!

My Project

My students are learning how to read in kindergarten! They don't know it yet, but becoming readers happens in multiple ways.

Having a station to listen to fluent readers read fun and exciting books to them will foster a love of reading as well as help them become readers by being able to look at words and listen to how they are spoken out loud.

My students will be learning, but also having fun while listening to stories that are both new and old and discovering new worlds and characters through books.

Every day they will have the opportunity to listen and learn to read at their new listening centers!
