My Students

My kindergarten students come from the surrounding neighborhood and some from other parts of the city. They choose to come to our magnet school because we truly do care about our students.

The majority of the students come from poverty or a low-income families.

More students in our school are on free or reduced lunch. Some students even walk to school on their own as young as kindergarten. No matter what situation they are coming from we are the guiding light in these children's lives.

My Project

My classroom is filled with opportunity for the children to listen to books on CD and tape. Years ago I decided the best way for the students to focus was for them to have individual books with CD players. It was the best idea ever! Last year theses CD players finally broke.

My classroom needs new individual CD players and headphones for read to self for Daily 5.

I put these in buckets for them to use during station time so they can listen to books and follow along.

I cannot wait for new players!
