My Students

Hello! My students are amazing and eager to learn by exploring and discovering new things everyday. They love to interact and work with others. They constantly ask questions and believe that they can change the world. My students really like coming together to share ideas and to help each other. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful citizens in their community.

Having the opportunity to be part of these students' lives is truly a gift.

They put smiles on my face as they continue to grow and shine everyday.

My Project

The amazing literacy centers that I picked give beginning readers the chance to learn new literacy skills independently or with a partner. Students have the opportunity to work at these literacy centers while the teacher is working in a small reading groups.

Each literacy center helps students to continue to work on early literacy skills daily and most importantly lets them have fun while doing it.

Having these unique literacy centers in our classroom will for sure create even more smiles and excitement. Students will identify letters, find missing sounds, and build new words.
