My Students

My students come from a large neighborhood community about twenty miles north of a major city. My students are excited about learning and they learn best with hands-on materials. My students are very curious and are always asking questions about things they are interested in learning. My students deserve to have every opportunity possible in order to pursue their dreams. My students learn best when materials are interesting and engaging that keeps them focused on the tasks at hand. I want to provide my wonderful students with anything that will help them with their education.

My Project

These books will help my students learn social skills and skills needed to help them learn about being in school. It is so important for students in Kindergarten to learn about being in school. Many of the books will help them learn how to listen or follow directions. Some of the books will teach them not to use hurtful words and one about empathy.

Kindergarten teachers are the ones that lay that foundation for kids to know how to act and behave in school.

If we don't teach them these skills, it will be hard for them to be successful. Please help my students learn all about social skills through these funny yet important books.
