My Students

My students are children of suburban and immigrant families. They are five and six years old and most have been through a prekindergarten program. We also have ESOL children who may have never been to school before so it may be difficult for them to leave mom, dad and siblings.

My school offers ESE/Autism/ELL inclusion so these children may integrate and learn with typical peers.

I am also an enrichment teacher and must differentiate for each student so that they can be challenged and engaged.

My school is extremely supportive of these children and we take pride in our A rating each year. Teachers are extremely collaborative and we love to share our ideas with urgency and innovation. We have many incentives to improve reading and math skills including tutoring programs and technology. There is definitely a team spirit here. Since I have children of varying exceptionalities, I like to reach them using the multiple intelligences strategy: tactile, visual, oral, aural, and definitely kinesthetically. Yet, with more rigorous standards and increasing demands, I need to make lessons even more memorable and lasting. While kindergarten may be rising in its challenges, we can still find engaging ways to reach all students!

My Project

A comfortable reading section is important to encourage and motivate kindergarten students to read individually or with buddies. The area, in which this bookcase will be located, is decorated in a country chic design so the light color of the bookcase will enhance the space's coziness and atmosphere.

This bookcase will fit in a very specific area against a wall in which students will relax on a small couch and be able to reach for monthly themed books.

Having books organized and attainable for young readers increases their desire to read. This will subsequently improve their vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.
