My Students

Kindergarten in the best place in the world. It is a magical time where kids learn everything about their environment. They develop creativity and enhance their imagination. My students are high-poverty, low income students from a very culturally diverse population. They are inspired by the world around them, but often times do not get exposure to much more than our rural town. We are a Title I school, but we work hard to excel. All teachers work hard to provide the best individualized education for all students. Our kindergarten class is made up of students who are eager to learn about everything.

My Project

A wide variety of interesting and developmentally appropriate text help students develop a love of reading. We will use these books to create a classroom library for students to explore during independent reading. Throughout kindergarten, the students will have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of different text to develop their own interests.

The students will be able to choose books on their reading level based on their developing interests.

The variety of books include fiction and nonfiction texts geared to meet the individual desires of each student.

Motivating students to love reading begins with texts that make students feel successful. A classroom filled with books will help instill a love of reading at an early age.
