My Students

I absolutely love teaching kindergarten! Our community is very supportive of children and their education. However, we are finding many students arrive to school unprepared socially and academically. All kindergarten parents have the same goals: keep my child safe and teach them how to read.

More and more students are arriving to my kindergarten classroom without having at least 2000 or more books read to them while growing up at home.

Reading to children during their formative years is a huge indicator for success in learning. As I start a new school year with my classroom, they soon learn to love my read aloud time to them. Providing these young learners with a variety of literacy is a focus of mine and I am intentional with the literature I choose to read to them.

I love reading to my students! I read many books each day to my students. Finding kindergarten text which is engaging and meets our curriculum and cultural learning targets is challenging and time-consuming. Especially difficult is finding nonfiction text which is informative as well as culturally relevant. Let's Find Out weekly reader meets all of our needs.

My Project

Let's Find Out sends the classroom a weekly magazine to build early learning skills. Students and teachers look forward to learning seasonal and target-based nonfiction information while supporting literacy.

Let's Find Out is the kindergarten classroom magazine that gets kids reading and introduces them to exciting science and social studies topics.

With captivating nonfiction, big color photos and fun activities, Let's Find Out keep early learners engaged so they build the knowledge and skills they need most.

The magazine includes high-quality nonfiction, pencil and paper activities, skill-building features and reading fundamentals while the digital features watch and learn videos, printable activity pages, listen and read issues and play and learn games. All of this ad-free!
