My Students

My teammates and I, my 22 Kinder friends, are full of life and absolutely love learning!

We do everything with great passion, and have so much fun coming to school everyday!

We share our love for one another every day and want to make the most of our time together, because at our school friends come and go due to our heavy military influence. The experience of learning is new to Kinders, and I want to make the most of their time with me. We jam pack each and every day with exploration, trying new things, and having fun!

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create for my students. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy-it is a place every kids loves to go. Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time, but now with books that are on their reading level.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level.

They will also be able to choose books that they are able to read, which is huge for a kindergartner. The best way to increase reading skill is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading by being able to apply what they know to other books. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich and enhance their experiences, especially for my students who are just learning English.
