My Students

My students come to school each morning having already experienced many struggles before they even enter the classroom. They are living in a world where safety is precarious. For many of these children, school is the one place where they are protected from the dangers of their outside world.

My students deserve a safe, happy place to begin their academic journey.

They deserve the same opportunities as other children. They deserve to experience being children without having to worry about the turmoil that is so prevalent in their daily lives.

My Project

My kindergarten students are just embarking on their academic journey. This journey includes learning how to write narrative, opinion and informative pieces. Many kindergartners will begin the writing process by telling their stories through pictures.The composition books will help them keep their work organized as well as provide a space to add words to their pictures.

The word journals will help my students gain confidence as writers by increasing their sight word recognition.

They will also help my students become more comfortable with the writing process as well as increase their independence during our writing time. The paper will be used for their published work that will be shared with the class.
