My Students

Kindergarten is such an important year in a child's academic career. From learning how to read, to making new friends, to learning how to add, to learning about how to be a good citizen. These skills go with them for the rest of their lives.

Our school is located in an inner city where crime rates are high.

Each year the school holds a lottery for the town. Parents in this community choose this school for their children so they are provided with an excellent education. This year, we are in a new building with more students.

I am looking to provide materials for all of my students to help them with their sight words.

My Project

I chose the Vocabulary Picture Card library specifically for my 6 ESL students who need extra help with recognizing everyday objects and people. This will help them when they are trying to build a sentence and also to expand their vocabulary.

I also chose a Road to Reading Activity center and 3 Letter Word Puzzle for my students who are struggling with reading at this time of the year.

These two items will help them build the foundations to get into reading.

I also chose materials to make sight word flash cards for all of my students. It is very important that they can identify, use, write, and spell these important words that will help them read and write. Each student would have a set of cards to have at all times.

Lastly, I chose a Leveled Sight Word card set for my students who are recognizing their sight words but need reinforcement on how to use them in a sentence and this also helps with differentiated instruction.
