My Students

My PreK4 students are absolutely amazing! I have 23 students in my class this year, 11 boys and 12 girls. This group of students is special because of their diversity and wide range of skills. But I also have a few students who are experiencing school for the first time this year.

Our school is a Title I school and all of my students receive free or reduced meals.

This curious group of children come to school everyday ready to explore and learn new things. My students knowledge and life experiences are so diverse that I have to be sure that I give every child the opportunity to learn and grow from where they are currently.

My Project

The Ready-to-Go Listening Center and Informational text read-along books will allow me to set up an independent listening station. The students will be able to choose a book from which to read-along and learn. Everyone will benefit from this project, because the students will be exposed to nonfiction text at the beginner level. The Light Table with alphabet tracing cards is a learning tool that will help students explore and practice writing letters independently.

Everything that I am requesting will allow my students to take ownership of their learning, because everyone can participate and benefit from these materials regardless of their skill level.
