My Students

My kindergarten students are busy little bees that are excited to come to school every day and learn. They are great friends to each other and are caring leaders in our school community. Our school is located in an urban area, and many of my students come from low-income households. For many, school is a safe haven from their high-poverty, high-stress lives outside of school.

My students are caring, knowledge seekers who are excited to be leaders in our school environment.

They are enthusiastic and support one another in their successes. My students have shown that they love learning about their community and our world when given the resources to do so.

My Project

By providing my Kindergarteners with quality, non-fiction reading material they will be engaged and interested in learning about the world around them. Scholastic "Let's Find Out" and "Science Spin" magazines do an excellent job of teaching Science and Social Studies through the use of current events and topics that are interesting to students at this age. They will learn about things such as their 5 senses, the life cycle of insects, weather, national elections, how to get along with others, and rules for school. It is nice for students to be exposed to a variety of types of reading material, including magazines, and Scholastic also includes a technology component through the use of the Smartboard.
