My Students

I teach Pre-Kindergarten in an inclusion and English as a Second Language setting. I teach two groups of children, a morning and an afternoon class, with a total of 32 students.

I teach Pre-K at an Early Childhood School in Texas with more than 650 Pre-Kindergarten students at our campus.

Many of them are being raised in single parent households and ALL of my students receive a free breakfast/lunch based on their socioeconomic status. My students come into my classroom every day with smiles on their faces, ready to learn, despite the challenges that many of them face at home.

I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experiences during the school day. My goal as their teacher is to give them the best education and to mold them into life-long learners!

My Project

I am asking for some Level 1 sight word books that I can put in our classroom library. My students have worked so hard this school year, and more than half of them have masted all of their letters and sounds. I have started introducing sight words to them to prepare them for reading!

The Level 1 sight word books that I am requesting will allow my students to gain hands-on practice with the sight words they are learning.

Children need to practice sight words as much as they can in real context. These books will allow them to practice the words daily during their independent reading time daily. Often times, my students ask me to read their story books to them because the text is too long for them to try to decode themselves. These Level 1 Sight word books will be absolutely perfect so that students can challenge themselves to practice reading independently. In addition, these books will touch the lives of all the students to come! They will be so useful this school year as well as in the years to come.

I am also requesting wild animals puzzles and a zoo themed number sequencing activity. I have many students who have difficulty with completing puzzles independently. Puzzles are great for strengthening fine motor skills, problem solving and cognitive skills. The number sequencing activity will help students with number identification and number order. We have a zoo themed unit coming up, and these manipulatives will fit perfectly with that theme.
