My Students

As a large Title I campus, many of my students do not have access to books and reading materials at home. Therefore, the school setting is often their only exposure to books and good literature.

Do you remember what you learned in Kindergarten?

Early experiences lay the foundation for future learning. Our campus is a full Title I and bilingual campus. This past year we had 122 students and 26% of those students were bilingual. 25% of our students are low English proficient and 27% are economically disadvantaged. Many of our students come to us with limited academic experiences.

My Project

One of the hardest pieces of Kindergarten Curriculum is writing. Kindergarten students come with little or no background in writing--which includes everything from holding a pencil correctly to writing stories and doing research. Young students need a systematic curriculum to learn the appropriate way to write.

Kindergarten students can show phenomenal growth in writing from the beginning of the year to the end of the year!

It is so exciting to see how proud students are when they bring you some of their writing and you can read it without their assistance. But it is a year-long process in which students need direct instruction. The KinderWriting Curriculum Units and the KinderHandwriting Curriculum are aligned with my district and state expectations and would be a great resource for me and my students.
