My Students

Teaching kindergarten is such an adventure! Each day, the students amaze me with their curiosity, ingenuity, and creativity.

My classroom consists of 23 amazing children that are so excited to come to school each day.

My students love to read, write and create every day and I want to make my classroom a fun place for them to learn. We love to have theme weeks and dress-up days!

My Project

Kindergarten students love to listen to books being read aloud. Each week, I invite one parent or grandparent to be a 'Mystery Reader' for our class. They often want ideas for read alouds that the students will enjoy, so that is why I made this project.

Young children enjoy many types of books, including wordless picture books, books with favorite characters and books that they have never heard before.

The variety of books in this project provide all of those types of books that my students love. They will be a great addition to our classroom library.
