My Students

I have twenty-five amazing students! I work at a Title I school. These energetic children are enthusiastic and motivated learners. My pupils have a unique variety of abilities, interests, and learning styles. In kindergarten, it is developmentally appropriate to have lessons where the kids have opportunities to interact hands-on and creatively. In kindergarten, we must focus on rigorous academics, free play, creativity, and developing fine and gross motor skills.

I hope to provide my students with the appropriate level of books to help each child progress at his or her optimal level of achievement.

My Project

Kindergartners love a good book. Story-time is such a special time in our classroom. It is often filled with lots of laughs or deep 5 year old discussions. My kids always beg me to read them another story. I think this is fantastic. The kids are learning to read in kindergarten. Having them fall in love with books inspires them for their own educational journey. I am requesting some of the top rated story books of 2018. The books have a variety of themes that cover topics of diversity, self-esteem, tolerance, and friendship.

The books: "Square", "Don't Blink", "Love", "Island Born", "Hidden Figures", "The Digger and The Flower", "Elmore", " Wordy Birdy", "The Rabbit That Listened", and "Crunch The Shy Dinosaur" will all be a huge asset to our classroom.

These books will inspire art projects and digital storytelling, initiate important discussions, and help the kindergartners fall in love with reading.

Thank you for supporting our classroom.
