I teach kindergarten at a high poverty school in Johnson City, TN.
I have 20 students in my class.
They are a very sweet group of eager learners that get excited about everything I introduce to them! They are lots of fun and they make my job of teaching very enjoyable!
I love to provide opportunities for my students that they normally would never get the chance to experience. They are always very appreciative and they love learning new things!
My kindergarten students need daily opportunities to practice reading so they are able to meet their end of the year goals and possibly even surpass them! I like to place books in their hands that spark their individual interests and allow them to fall in love with reading and books!
A child's attitude toward school is based on their first experiences.
As a kindergarten teacher, I have an important job to make sure my students have positive experiences and also develop a lifetime love of learning.
The "First Little Comic Readers" are leveled so the students will have a book that is appropriate for their ability. The stories are quite comical with funny illustrations. I know they will motivate my students to read, increase their reading abilities, and most of all - be enjoyable!
