My Students

My kindergarten students are active and full of energy. They love to learn in authentic settings. Most of my students come from homes that are considered economically disadvantaged and all students at my school receive free lunch and breakfast. About a fourth of my class is reading below level and the rest of my students mostly read on what is considered the low end of grade level. Without continued opportunities to practice their reading skills in engaging settings, all of my students could easily be reading below grade level.

My students will engage in reading, but only when the books interest them.

When it is time to read, they often want to read the same book, which can lead to frustration and disengagement.

My Project

Adding more engaging books to my class library will encourage my students to read more at home and at school. When a teacher has a wide selection of books, and multiple copies of the same title, students should be able to find books that interest them, which will motivate them to engage with books and fall in love with reading. Additionally, having more titles in a classroom library gives students the opportunity to be able to check the books out and take them home to practice. Students find excitement in being able to show their newly acquired reading skills to their family members. Having more engaging books in my classroom library will give students more opportunities to practice.
