I teach twenty-five, kindergarten students who come from a high needs area. Kindergarten is the first time many of these students have stepped into a classroom. Kindergarten is the first step of their journey to learning and creating new friendships.
Literacy is the foundation of their education that enables them to become successful learners.
My students come in enthusiastic and eager to learn everyday in spite of the economic challenges they face. They are excited to explore new materials and new ways of learning. I am proud to be their teacher!
Word work is a huge part of a Kindergartener's day. Having children practice spelling, building words, and sounding out words will be beneficial to them in all subject areas. The use of centers is a great way for students to have fun while still learning. These activities are different word building activities that the students can use as they grow as a speller.
Spelling is a fundamental skill for children to have before leaving Kindergarten.
These activities will be used during center time, where children can work in a small group to solve puzzles and create words together. Having children use these activities will allow them to strengthen different skills, such as sounding out words, identifying beginning, middle and ending sounds of words as well as blending.
In order to keep children's materials in tact throughout the year, I am requesting a laminator to use frequently in the classroom. It's important that all charts and supplies in the classroom stay well kept throughout the year as resources for the children to use. Having a laminator would be extremely helpful for organization!
