My Students

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." - Benjamin Franklin.

Hello and Welcome!

I am a Kindergarten teacher at a Title I school with a large population of English language learners. All of the students qualify for the free lunch program. Despite having difficult living circumstances and situations, these 18 energetic scholars are excited and eager to learn each day! They learn the best through hands-on and engaging activities. Will you help us?

They are thinkers, problem solvers, mathematicians, scientists, authors, illustrators, helpers, teachers, and citizens. Thank you for believing in my students and supporting education!

My Project

We are requesting ready-to-use centers that will make independent learning fun! The centers have everything students need to build beginning language skills—from word building and rhyming sounds to sight-word recognition. After setting up each center around the classroom, I will introduce each activity. The students will be divided into groups of 2-3, put into a rotation to use the activities, and work at their own pace. Each center has a double-sided instruction chart that gives everyone easy access to the activities and simple picture instructions students can follow on their own.

Kindergarten literacy skills are key to children's reading success.

These centers will help build a solid foundation of these skills to ensure strong readers!
