My Students

What I love about Kindergarten is that each precious little person that enters my classroom comes with a beautiful fire in their soul for learning. They crave new knowledge and they long to seek out and discover the world around them. Writing allows the freedom to share about their world, their opinions, their narratives, the knowledge they have acquired in their short lives. Since I am a kindergarten teacher I have the pleasure of meeting 24 amazing new students fresh out preschool or daycare. Each with different life stories to tell. All equally fascinating and unique. They are just at the starting line of writing and I am given the opportunity to watch them take off and fly. With my guidance, modeling, and let's be real patience my students begin to develop foundational writing skills that they will apply their entire life. From learning how to spelling their names, write a simple sentence, illustrate a story, and create whole stories, my students learn to use written language to express themselves. This skill is a remarkably powerful tool in their life and I want to allow them the opportunity to have their own personal writing journals to write in and treasure.

My Project

Kindergarten is crazy place. Filled with love, laughter, a little bit of drama, a whole lot of dramatics, and my favorite part it's a place where it's safe to imagine a world filled with dinosaurs, princesses, fluffy wild animals being your best friend, invent cookie recipes, and hold a interview with some old dead guy because they are trying to write a biography. Kindergartners need a placed and the materials such as personal writing journals to allow them to get creative and explore written language. These journals keep them organized and allow them to hold on to their stories forever.
