My Students

A classroom should be a comfortable place for students to learn and work cooperatively. My students are engaged in making choices in their education all throughout the day.

Giving children choice in all aspects of their education will boost their enthusiasm towards learning.

In reading workshop my students are able to choose their own books to read, in writing workshop my students are able to choose what they write about, in Math my students can choose the numbers they are working with and they are even able to choose the best learning environment for their style of learning. It is my hope to teach my students how to make good choices and learning this skill will carry them through the rest of their lives.

My Project

In the beginning of Kindergarten we go on an adventure with books. We read learn about the world books trying to learn all we can and we also read some old favorite storybooks in order to become storybook readers. It is essential to have a wide variety of learn about the world books in order to capture the many interests the Kindergartners have.

Quantity of books and quality of the book and illustrations are crucial to draw in these new young readers.

Therefore, I have chosen about 15 new titles to add to my classroom library to help capture the imagination and love of the world that these children have.
