My Students

My students are kindergartners that come from a very diverse background, and next year will include students with special needs. For many of them, they are completing their first year of school.

My kinders have such an admirable desire to learn!

They are a fun group who have a "can-do" attitude! I have yet to find something that they don't work hard and try their best to accomplish! I am hoping to acquire more reading materials specific to their needs and reading levels to give them even more opportunities to grow and be successful! With the inevitable reality of having to switch to remote learning this year, and the need to have individual supplies, I would like to make sure to have materials to continue making school fun and engaging, not just worksheets.

My Project

As an educator, I am always trying to improve my teaching, learn and grow. I am currently trying use more strategies and materials that support the Science of Reading and the way our brains learn.

In an effort to do that, I would like to put more emphasis on structured literacy and using phonics to decode/encode while reading and writing.

The phonics games in this project will help give my students opportunities to practice, apply, and master the phonics skills we are practicing.

My hope is that through stronger phonics instruction my students will gain a solid reading foundation and in turn become strong readers.
