My Students

Our kindergarten students come from a wide variety of backgrounds. There are approximately 20 students in each of 4 classrooms this year.

We meet the needs of many different students at our school, including both the elementary ESL and autistic support programs.

At our school, we strive to challenge each and every student to their fullest potential. Differentiating instruction for students is a priority. Additionally, we try our best to provide our students with a fun and engaging learning environment.

My Project

Kindergarten students love to learn about the world around them!

Our kindergarten students need engaging nonfiction books that will allow the students to learn by reading at their guided reading levels.

These Guided Science Readers are fun and exciting for young children. They are extremely appropriate for our emerging readers! Students will be able to read these books during their small group guided reading instruction. The different levels will allow all of the students to progress at their own pace.

At our school, we share our guided reading books as a grade level. These books would be used for approximately 80 students. Our students really need more nonfiction books that they are able to read themselves!
