My Students

My Kindergarten students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything! I work at a Title I school where a large percentage of students receive free or reduced price breakfast/lunch, as well as take-home food for the weekend.

Many of the students come from hardworking families who want the best for their children and my classroom is the place that will help them begin building that foundation.

As a teacher, I look forward to offering my students a warm and inviting environment and supportive place to learn. I want each child to know that when they work hard and try their best, they will do amazing things!

My Project

Kindles in Kindergarten will allow my students to utilize technology in multiple ways. One of the biggest uses will be in the listening center in our classroom. It will be updated by giving the students the opportunity to listen to books on the Kindles. They will use an app on the Kindle that will read a QR code. They will have access to thousands of books by using the Kindles. Once they scan the QR code the story will pop up and they can follow along on the Kindle or right along in the book.

The listening center is a great way for the students to practice beginning reading skills!

The students love listening to stories over and over again. Some of the skills they are using are reading from left to right, word placement, beginning word recognition, picture/ word correlation, sentence structure, & comprehension skills.

There are many uses for the Kindles in the Kindergarten classroom and my students can not wait to explore and utilize them!
