My Students

My students come from various backgrounds but despite this diversity they have a strong desire to learn and explore. My Kindergarten learners are naturally curious and I want to encourage them to dream big dreams.

My students' background knowledge and experiences are limited due to their environment but we can change that for them!

My students are from a small rural community without much industry. I want to build their background knowledge and enlarge their vocabulary because they do not get to travel much to experience different activities.

My Project

In our school we are nurturing lifelong learning and thinking about real world subjects. We just need more informational texts to help us on our way. South Carolina has a "Read to Succeed" law that essentially requires students to be on reading grade level at third grade and eighth grade. Therefore, our school is putting an emphasis on classroom libraries this year. Our classroom library has many fiction texts but we are limited with our non fiction selections.

Scholastic's "Let's Find Out" leaflet magazines will provide weekly access to more complex informational texts for my students filled with real pictures, rich vocabulary and concepts!

Each week they can add "Let's Find Out" to their Independent Reading bags and build their own library! How exciting that will be for my little learners. These magazines will also build background knowledge so that we can link real world concepts to our classroom subjects. We will also use these magazines for writing our own informational texts.
