I serve a wonderful group of kindergartners who are ages 5-6 years old in West Virginia. I have 9 boys and 14 girls in my classroom of 23 students.
We are considered a high poverty school with over half of our students receiving a free or reduced rate lunch.
I also have students in my classroom that are considered homeless.
Regardless of my students home situations, every day they come in the door smiling and eager to learn. Their thirst for knowledge is very refreshing. I love my students' passion to learn new things. I look forward to seeing them everyday. Not only do they learn through me, but I am always learning from them as well.
My students love to learn. Their minds are like sponges and they absorb everything they see and hear. With everything in life, some things spark their interest more than others. I find myself constantly trying to appeal to their different interests, which at times can be a challenge.
These two National Geographic Readers sets appeal to all students with a variety of interests, as they encompass a wide range of topics.
They are kid friendly and written to appeal to young readers. The fact that they are nonfiction is an added bonus.
Having these readers in my classroom as an additional resource to our reading curriculum would be valuable asset. My students would be thrilled to have these available to them!
